Parents & students will meet with legislators
COLUMBIA, S.C. – On Wednesday, the South Carolina chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org will host its annual 2017 Capitol Day Rally, bringing together parents and students from across the state to learn about the civic process, meet with legislators and share their stories about how school choice has benefitted their families.
The PublicSchoolOptions.org Capitol Day Rally will start with a legislative overview at 10 a.m. followed by a rally on the State House steps at 11:15 a.m. Following the rally attendees will visit with their legislators.
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.
