National School Choice Week started in 2011, and has quickly become America's largest-annual celebration of educational choice. The Week, which is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, is designed to raise public awareness of existing school choice options, while providing a platform for supporters to rally for additional education choices for families. Participants support increasing access to high performing traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning and homeschooling.
