School Choice Week starts today in Utah and across America.
Throughout the Week, which runs until January 31, there will be 67 school choice events across the Beehive State.
The events are part of National School Choice Week, which will feature 11,082 events across America – the largest celebration of educational opportunity in US history.
School Choice Week events in Utah include open houses, information sessions, policy roundtable discussions and more – planned by schools, organizations, homeschool groups and individuals. The goal of the events is to inform parents about the K-12 education options available for their children, while raising awareness of the benefits providing families with a variety of different options for their children’s education.
Utah cities with the most events include Salt Lake City (14), West Jordan (5), and St. George (4). To help raise additional awareness, the mayor of Salt Lake City also issued a proclamation officially recognizing Jan. 25-31, 2015 as School Choice Week in the city.
