Parent Coalition Calls On Nevada State Lawmakers to Support Access to School Choice
RENO, NV – Nevada Parents for Online Education – a statewide organization advocating access to public online education – is calling on the Nevada State Legislature to recognize the voices of parents who support access to educational options. As part of National School Choice Week, January 24 – 30, families are standing up in support of their right to access an education that works for students, no matter their geographic location, race or socio-economic status.
“Our parent coalition continues to grow because of the enthusiasm for school choice throughout the state,” said Jay Schuler, a parent leader of Nevada Parents for Online Education. “While traditional schools may be a great environment for most, some children simply need another option. For those who do, parents should have access to a quality, virtual public education. That’s why we aim to protect, promote and expand school choice in Nevada.”
Nevada Parents for Online Education is participating in National School Choice Week to shine a spotlight on effective education options for every child. Independently planned by a diverse coalition of individuals, schools and organizations, NSCW features thousands of special events across the country. NSCW is a nonpartisan and nonpolitical public awareness effort. For more details, please visit: http://schoolchoiceweek.com.
