FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – At 10 a.m. on Monday at the State Capitol schools and organizations will be celebrating the importance of options in K through 12 education.
In Lexington, 297 celebrations are taking place this week.
According to a press release, this will be the largest series of education-related events in u.s. history with a record-breaking 51,300 events and activities across the nation.
So what exactly is national school choice week?
“Every child deserves a great education but we know one school might work for one child but it might not work for another so school choice gives parents the power to choose the education environments that meet the needs of their individual kids,” said National School Choice Week President, Andrew Campanella.
The week is all about celebrating education options through traditional public schools, public magnet schools, public charter schools, online schools, private schools, and homeschooling, that help kids succeed.
Senator Ralph Alvarado is expected to speak on the topic.
This is the 10th annual celebration of National School Choice Week at the State Capitol where each school type will use the week to spotlight their achievements and accomplishments.
