National School Choice Week

This is National School Choice Week and there’s a big support rally planned for Austin.

Organizer Randan Steinhauser says more than 16,000 school choice events are taking place across the country including more than 1,000 here in Texas alone.

She says the biggest in the state will be on Friday when thousands of school choice supporters will gather on the south steps of the capitol building.

School Choice Week was started to raise awareness for the need and benefits of educational opportunity.
