SANTA FE, N.M., Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Next Tuesday, charter school parents and students from across New Mexico will hold a school choice rally at the Inn and Spa at Loretto. The event, hosted by the New Mexico chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org, will bring together families that benefit from school choice and will give them an opportunity to learn about legislation that could affect the future of school choice. It will also be an opportunity for attendees to meet with legislators to share their personal stories.

PublicSchoolOptions.org believes that every child, regardless of their zip code or how much money their parents make, deserves the best start in life. We firmly believe that begins with a parent's ability to choose the school where their child will thrive — whether that's in a traditional brick and mortar school, public virtual school, charter school, home school, or private school. Giving parents options so their child can succeed is critical.
