The second annual National School Choice Week is coming up soon. It’s almost time to stop gearing up and to start getting into action. For most of my fellow Coloradans, there aren’t any good excuses to not be able to attend even of the numerous events going on during the week of January 22-28:
- On Thursday evening, January 26, you can watch the movie Kids Aren’t Cars at the Independence Institute’s new Freedom Embassy, with a brief talk afterwards by my Education Policy Center friends
- On Tuesday evening, January 24, you can attend the Restoring American Exceptionalism Denver Townhall with guest speakers Hugh Hewitt and Dick Morris at the Douglas County Events Center
- Or the night before — Monday, January 23 — you can check in at the Colorado Springs edition of the Restoring American Exceptionalism townhall with featured speaker Michelle Malkin
- On January 28, teachers can “enjoy a Saturday morning breakfast and spend some time finding ideas and projects at the Resource Area for Teachers (RAFT),” compliments of the Professional Association of Colorado Educators
- On Friday afternoon, January 27, big people can find the School Choice Happy Hour in Denver
- What better time than School Choice Week to visit a school that is doing something different? You can arrange a visit to the TR Paul Academy of Arts and Knowledge, a Fort Collins charter school, on either Tuesday or Wednesday
There may be more National School Choice Week events coming up in Colorado, but these are the ones I’m aware of. Show your support by showing up to one or more of these great events! And don’t forget to tell a friend….
