ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Several hundred Minnesotans, including students, educators and parents, will celebrate Minnesota School Choice Week at a rally in the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
The rally, which will be held at 1:15 p.m., will unite families and educational leaders from a variety of school backgrounds in their shared desire for increased awareness about school choice.
This event is planned to coincide with the history-making celebration of National School Choice Week 2019, which will feature more than 40,000 school choice events across all 50 states.
"When parents actively choose schools and educational opportunities for their children, students are more likely to succeed," said Chas Anderson, executive director of Opportunity for All Kids. "During National School Choice Week, we are proud to highlight Minnesota student successes and commit to giving parents and students greater educational choice, regardless of their zip code or their family's financial situation."
This event is being organized by Opportunity for All Kids, a statewide advocacy organization focusing on building grassroots support for education choice for students.
