Let’s see how many times I can say it between now and Friday: It’s National School Choice Week! If that doesn’t get you pumped up, what will? Okay, okay. You want to know what’s behind the name. Well, there are a couple big events going on here in Colorado that I know about:
- A Twitter chat at 8 PM MST each night this week about the expansion of school choice in Douglas County, follow @Gr8Choice on Twitter — Monday: Home Education; Tuesday: Charter Schools; Wednesday: Option Certificates; Thursday: Neighborhood School Empowerment; Friday: Online Learning
- In case you missed the movie The Cartel when my Education Policy Center friends screened it last year, the state chapter of Americans for Prosperity is teaming up with Parents Challenge and the Schuck Foundation to host a presentation by Michelle Malkin followed by a screening of the film tomorrow evening (that’s Tuesday, January 25, 6:30 PM) at the Vanguard School in Colorado Springs
Meanwhile, if you want an inspiring read to fit the theme of the week, check out Guy Benson’s Townhall column based on an inspirational interview he had with Virginia Walden Ford, the main force behind D.C. Parents for School Choice.
