President of National School Choice Week on need for education options

By: Anita Peek-Brinson

Parents should be allowed to find the school that best fits their child’s needs. That’s the message Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week, wants Americans to hear. NSCW started on Sunday and concludes Saturday. Organizers estimate that 6.7 million people will participate in one of more than 32,000 nationwide events, including 125 events in Southern Nevada.

“Every child is different,” said Campanella while filming Nevada Politics Today. “Children learn differently. When we can pair kids up with schools that best meet their needs, they’re more inspired, challenged, motivated and happy. They’ll go on to more successful and productive lives. That’s really the goal of education.”

Campanella says school choice is more than just shorthand for Education Savings Accounts or vouchers. NSCW celebrates every educational option, including those offered by traditional public schools.
