My South Carolina Education is excited to announce that they will be celebrating National School Choice Week (January 26-February 1, 2020) with a special spotlight event!
The event will feature a State House Day. SC Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette will address parents and students. Parents and students will visit a legislative caucus meeting as well as pursue individual interactions with their lawmakers. We will be celebrating school choice in South Carolina currently exercised by the student attendees.
Our vision is simple but bold: every student in South Carolina, no matter their zip code, deserves the opportunity of a high-quality education that helps them reach their full potential. We seek to build a strong coalition of diverse community organizations, policymakers, business and religious leaders, students, parents, educators and other South Carolina citizens who are interested in working together to dramatically expand opportunity and options for students in our state.
Started in 2011, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest annual education-related celebration. The goal of NSCW, which features participation from tens of thousands of schools and organizations, is to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children.
During National School Choice Week, schools across America celebrate the challenging, motivating, and effective education they provide to students. At the same time, parents use the week to learn more about the education options available to their children, in advance of the upcoming school year.
National School Choice Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and is not related to any legislative advocacy efforts.
