Gov. Gary R. Herbert has signed a proclamation officially recognizing the week of January 27 to February 2 as “Utah School Choice Week." Herbert joins nearly 30 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 Utah 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 homeschooling.
With more than a dozen events being held to celebrate the Week in Utah 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.
National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness campaign. The Week is not partisan in nature and does not advocate for 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.
“We are grateful that Governor Herbert has officially recognized School Choice Week in Utah,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “Millions of people across the country are united in their view that access to a quality education can provide a ticket to the American dream for children nationwide.”
