FRANKFORT (Jan. 17, 2019) – More than 1,000 students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and supporters, wearing signature yellow scarves, will gather at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 24 at the Capitol in Frankfort. Community members and families that have benefited from school choice programs will share their stories at the celebration. 

This event is planned to coincide with the history-making celebration of National School Choice Week 2019, which will feature more than 40,000 school choice events across all 50 states. 

The event is coordinated by EdChoice Kentucky and partner organizations. 

“Across the Bluegrass, Kentucky communities and families recognize the important role education plays in the lives of their children,” said Charles Leis, President of EdChoice Kentucky. “Making sure that students have access to the best education possible, whether it is public or nonpublic, is something we can all celebrate. We look forward to joining the hundreds of supporters who recognize education is not one size fits all, but with all options on the table, every Kentucky student can earn an education that sets them up for success!”
