As we’re about to start summer, I wanted to touch base and thank you again for being so enthusiastic about National School Choice Week every year. Thanks to you, the Week has grown from 150 events in 2011 to more than 11,000+ events this past January.
And I’m confident 2016 will be even more impactful. (In fact, you can already pre-register for a free starter kit for your organization’s 2016 event, here.)
Of course, National School Choice Week isn’t the only time to commemorate effective education for children.
For example, this week is National Charter Schools Week, which we’re excited to commemorate — just as we celebrated magnet schools in February and digital and online learning in March.
And, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, too!
We hope you’ll take some time this week to thank a teacher who has made a positive difference in your life, or in the life of your child(ren). Great teachers play an essential role in all types of schools — and in the home. That’s why some of our most prominent NSCW signs feature positive messages about educators, and why tens of thousands of teachers play a crucial role in NSCW every year.
We hope you’ll join us in recognizing educators this week, and in celebrating the essential role that teachers play in making school choice a reality.
