The goal is to raise awareness of the different K-12 education options available for children, including traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

SMI joins tens of thousands of schools, homeschool groups, organizations, chambers of commerce – and millions of individual Americans – in celebrating National School Choice Week.
