Event will celebrate school choice options; connect families with legislators
SANTA FE, N.M. – On Tuesday, January 30, the New Mexico chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org will host their annual New Mexico Capitol Day in Santa Fe to celebrate virtual education and the benefits of all school choice options for students and families. The event begins at 10 a.m. with a program at the Inn and Spa at Loretto followed by a walk to the state capitol at 11 a.m.where attendees will take a group photo then meet with their legislators.
The event will be attended by families across New Mexico who benefit from school choice options, including virtual education. Attendees will hear from school choice leaders, learn about legislation that could impact their schools of choice, and share their personal school choice stories with 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.

STATEMENT FROM KYLA ANDERSON, PUBLICSCHOOLOPTIONS.ORG NEW MEXICO CHAPTER PARENT LEADER:
“School choice in New Mexico has given so many options to so many families and we are excited to celebrate those choices. Each year we come to the capitol to meet with legislators and tell our school choice stories. We hope lawmakers and education officials will establish policies that put even more trust in parents and provide them a seat at the decision-making table. Every child deserves access to the educational option that works best for them.”
