For far too long politicians and much of the media have ignored our failing school system and the need for education reform. The start of a new year and new legislative terms throughout the county gives us the opportunity to thoroughly examine how we invest in education and pursue the methods that benefit our children best.
This designated week is a national effort to start a meaningful conversation on education reform. There will be hundreds of events across the country to engage and help educate citizens on the multitude of school choice options available.
Go to www.schoolchoiceweek.com to find an event near you. And whether you get involved by attending an event, writing a letter to the editor of your local paper, tweeting with the hashtag #scw, or sharing a story on watchdogwire.com - please take a moment to reply to this email and let me know how you got involved!
