Gov. Haley proclaims “School Choice Week”

Governor Nikki Haley has signed a proclamation officially recognizing this week as “South Carolina School Choice Week.” Governor Haley joins more than 20 other U.S. governors in issuing a National School Choice Week proclamation. National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on all effective education options for children. Participants in National School Choice Week events in South Carolina and across the country believe that children deserve greater access to challenging, motivating educational options, from high-performing public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning, and home schooling. With 37 events being held to celebrate the Week in South Carolina alone and with 3,500 total events spanning all 50 states, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest-ever celebration of education reform. Events include everything from rallies to roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more. NationalSchool Choice Week is an independent public awareness campaign. The Week is not partisan in nature and does not advocate for any legislation or political candidates. Aside from the Week’s kickoff celebration and a 14-stop, cross-country, whistle-stop train tour, all events are independently planned by students, parents, teachers, organizations and community members.
