“School Choice Week” in Hawaii to Feature 30 Events

Largest-ever celebration of educational opportunity begins today, includes a record-breaking 5,500+ events nationwide.

News Release from School Choice Week

HONOLULU (1-25-2014) - Students, parents, teachers and community leaders across Hawaii will rally this week in support of school choice at 30 “School Choice Week” events across the Aloha State.

The events – which include roundtable discussions, school fairs, open houses at schools, rallies, community meetings and documentary screenings – are all part of National School Choice Week, a public awareness effort that runs from January 26 to February 1, 2014.

National School Choice Week spotlights public support for increased educational options for children – including traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning and homeschooling. Many parents in Hawaii will also use the Week to begin searching for new schools for their children for the 2014-2015 school year.

“More parents are actively choosing schools for their children than at any other time in American history,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “But still, there is tremendous demand for more educational options for families in Hawaii. This message, delivered by parents and their children during National School Choice Week, is one that leaders in Honolulu and throughout America need to hear.”

School Choice in Hawaii

What educational options are available to parents in Hawaii? In addition to local public schools, magnet and theme-based schools, private schools that parents can pay tuition for their children to attend, and homeschooling:

State law permits the creation of public charter schools, which are innovative, free public schools that are held accountable for results and open to all students.
