Event in Montgomery will celebrate school choice options for students and families
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Tomorrow, the Alabama chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org will co-sponsor a National School Choice Week rally in Montgomery to celebrate school choice and the options available to families in Alabama. The rally is expected to draw thousands of students and families from across Alabama who benefit from school choice options and to rally for tax credit scholarships and greater access to public charters.
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. Every child learns differently, even within the same family. Giving parents options so their child can succeed is critical.

Every child deserves access to the educational option that works best for them.”
