Governor Ige Proclaims Jan. 24-30 “Hawai’i School Choice Week” Joining Leaders Nationwide in Celebrating Opportunity in Education

Hawaii students, communities to hold over 60 events as part of nation's largest-ever celebration of school choice

News Release from SchoolChoiceWeek.com January 20, 2016

HONOLULU, HI – Hawaii Governor David Ige has officially proclaimed January 24-30, 2016 as “Hawai’i School Choice Week.” Governor Ige joins more than two dozen other governors and 210 mayors and county leaders nationwide in issuing proclamations.

With more than 60 events being held to celebrate the Week in Hawaii alone – and with more than 16,000 independently organized events across all 50 states – National School Choice Week will be America’s largest-ever celebration of opportunity in education. Events will include rallies, round-table discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more.

As a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort, National School Choice Week seeks to raise public awareness about school choice to start tens of thousands of individual conversations across our country about the need for, and benefits of, educational opportunity.

“We are grateful for Governor Ige’s support for School Choice Week in Hawaii,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “The growth in enthusiasm surrounding National School Choice Week demonstrates that Americans in communities across the country recognize, more than ever before, the importance of ensuring that all children have the opportunity to learn and to pursue their own American dreams.”

Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. Through thousands of independently planned events across the country, National School Choice Week raises public awareness of all types of educational choices available to children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
