Honolulu–During School Choice Week in Hawaii, students, parents, and teachers at every type of K-12 education option celebrated opportunity in education.  

The Week featured 78 events and activities across the Aloha State, including open house events at schools, school fairs, homeschool information sessions, and other celebrations.    

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.   

On the local level, elected officials and community leaders recognized the importance of educational opportunity by officially recognizing the Week. The city of Honolulu issued proclamations recognizing School Choice Week in their community.   

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.   

“We encourage Hawaii families to use National School Choice Week to evaluate the different K-12 education options for children, in time for the 2019-2020 school year,” said National School Choice Week President Andrew Campanella.
