MOBILE (Jan. 17, 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 a breakfast at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24.  

The breakfast, which will take place at the The Battlehouse, 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. 

“AOSF has nearly 500 students on scholarship in Mobile County—our largest area in the state. We are looking forward to bringing together legislators and scholarship families to look at ways we can improve educational access for all students as we celebrate National School Choice Week,” said Lesley Searcy, executive director of Alabama Scholarship Fund. 

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.
