BIRMINGHAM (Jan. 15, 2019) – Families who have received scholarships from the Alabama Scholarship Fund will share their thoughts on school choice at a roundtable discussion over breakfast with policymakers and community leaders at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23.   

The breakfast, which will take place at the Embassy Suites at Woodcrest Plaza, will give scholarship recipients the opportunity to discuss what educational environments and policies work best for their children.  

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. 

“We are thrilled to once again celebrate National School Choice Week in Alabama,” said Lesley Searcy, executive director of the Alabama Scholarship Fund. “Our Birmingham event will bring together legislators, scholarship families, and business leaders to discuss how to best serve the students of our state.”  

This event’s organizer, the Alabama Scholarship Fund, seeks to empower parents to choose the school that best fits their child’s unique educational needs.
