‘School Choice Week’ Begins Today in New Jersey; 130 Events Planned in the Garden State

This week is School Choice Week in New Jersey and across the country. More than 130 events are planned across the Garden State, in addition to 5,500 events nationwide.The Week, which is the nation’s largest-ever celebration of educational opportunity, gives students, parents, and teachers in New Jersey a chance to raise awareness of the different types of educational options available to families in advance of the 2014-2015 school year. Events across the state will include rallies, school fairs, roundtable discussions, open houses, and parent information sessions.


National School Choice Week spotlights all types of education options for families – including traditional public schools, public magnet schools, charter schools, private schools, online learning and homeschooling.

In addition to raising awareness of school choice options in New Jersey, the Week also provides students, parents and teachers with an opportunity to call on leaders in Trenton to expand access to high-quality education environments for children.

“New Jersey families know that when parents have the freedom to choose the best schools for their children, great things happen,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “Student achievement increases, graduation rates rise, and children are better prepared for real life.”

Said Campanella: “We hope families across the state will use National School Choice Week as an opportunity to learn more about the educational options available to their children, and to begin researching schools for the 2014-2015 school year. If families want to switch schools, January is the time to start the search process.”

The Week officially kicked off at a major rally Saturday night in Houston, Texas. Today, students wearing National School Choice Week’s signature yellow scarves will ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange.
