National School Choice Week is underway with celebrations taking place across the country in an effort to spread the word about the importance of educational opportunity. Education has always been one of the most empowering tools available to mankind. School choice gives parents the empowerment to choose the type of education that is appropriate for their children based on individual needs, rather than a government mandate that tells each child where to learn based on zip code, parental income, etc.
Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week, made the following statement in regards to his organization’s biggest week:
“[It] provides a unique opportunity for Americans to join together on an issue that impacts all of us: educational opportunity. With growth each year, it’s clear that tens of millions of Americans are excited to celebrate the great education options in their communities and stand up for increased choice and access where it doesn’t yet exist.”
It is important to keep in mind that corporations often stand behind certain educational policies, such as school choice and Common Core. Check out our company scores database to learn more, and remember that you can and do vote with your dollar everyday when you shop.
