Gov. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas has officially proclaimed Jan. 21-27, as Arkansas School Choice Week, joining dozens of other governors and hundreds of city and county leaders nationwide.

More than 32,000 independently planned events across all 50 states, including 350 in Arkansas, will celebrate opportunity in education, according to a press release. The rallies, coffeehouse meetups, roundtable discussions, receptions, festivals, and school fairs are aimed to spark conversations about school choice and help parents find the educational setting that’s best for their children.
“We’re excited that Arkansas will be joining the National School Choice Week celebrations, and we’re grateful that Gov. Hutchinson has issued this proclamation,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “Like parents everywhere, Arkansas parents want only the best for their kids’ education, and we hope National School Choice Week will give them an opportunity to pursue what’s best for their kids.”
 National School Choice Week is an independent, nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. Through thousands of independently planned events across the country, National School Choice Week raises public awareness of all types of educational choices available to children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
