During School Choice Week, Tennessee parents, students, and community members will participate in 1,381 events and activities across the state, including rallies, roundtable discussions, festivals, school fairs, and more.

More than 50,000 events have been independently planned for the week nationwide, aiming to spark conversations about the educational opportunities and learning environments parents have, or want to have, for their children.

"We're excited that Tennessee families are voicing their support for school choice, and we're thankful that Gov.

National School Choice Week is a prime time for parents to discuss their options in light of their children's unique talents and needs."

As a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort, National School Choice Week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for students, families, and communities around the country. From January 26 through February 1, 2020, more than 50,000 independently-planned events will be held in celebration of the Week. For more information, visit www.schoolchoiceweek.com/tennessee.
