Event will celebrate school choice options; connect families with legislators
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – This Wednesday, students and parents from across Tennessee will hold a school choice rally at the state capitol in Nashville. The event, hosted by the Tennessee chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org, will bring together families that benefit from school choice and will give them an opportunity to learn about legislation that could affect the future of school choice. It will also be an opportunity for attendees to meet with legislators to share their personal stories about why school choice is important to their families.
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. Giving parents options so their child can succeed is critical.
