Concord– Families and educators are celebrated School Choice Week and the empowerment and flexibility that educational options provide New Hampshire students.   

The Week featured 134 events and activities across the Granite State, including open house events at schools, school fairs, homeschool information sessions, and other celebrations. One of the largest events in the state was a rally at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord. Additional school choice community events were held in locales such as Pelham and Merrimack.  

Coverage of National School Choice Week spanned the state and featured stories in outlets such as The Conway Daily Sun and Granite Grok, among others.   

Nationwide, 40,549 events and activities were organized to raise awareness during National School Choice Week (Jan. 20-26, 2019), and 10.8 million Americans are estimated to have participated. It was the largest series of education-related events and activities in U.S. history. Additionally, Governor Christopher Sununu issued an official proclamation recognizing Jan. 20-26 as New Hampshire School Choice Week.   

Celebrated since 2011, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort. The Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and it is not related to any legislative advocacy campaign.   

“When it comes to opportunity in K-12 education, New Hampshire families have a variety of choices for their children’s schooling. We encourage parents to use National School Choice Week to look into these options,” said National School Choice Week President Andrew Campanella.
