By: Andrew Campanella

Later this month, schools, homeschool groups, organizations, and individuals in California and across America will work together to raise awareness about the importance of opportunity in K-12 education.

National School Choice Week begins on January 21 and celebrates all types of schools and education environments for children.

Nationwide, 32,240 different events and activities – such as open houses, school fairs, and information sessions – are being planned, with an estimated attendance of 6.7 million people. In fact, 2302 of those events and activities will be held in California, and three are in Gilroy.
