To combat confusion, build relationships with families with schools that are appropriate, to a school fair

LAS VEGAS, January 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine a relaxed setting where you can chat with a representative of a school you're interested in then walk just a few feet and do the same for another school you're considering.

On Saturday, Jan. 22, more than 75 schools of all ages will have booths at the Conference Center of Las Vegas to discuss information and answer families' questions.

The Las Vegas School Fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open to all children. More than 1,500 community members are expected to attend.

Families can also learn how to take advantage of Nevada's Opportunity Scholarship, which allows them to enroll in a private school of their choice.

As part of the celebration, the event will include more than 26,000 school choice events in all 50 states. This is a plan to coincide with the National School Choice Week celebration of January 23-29, 2022, which will feature large school fairs in more than a dozen cities in the United States, as well as the Las Vegas event.

"No matter your economic status, school choice should be rescheduled by parents," says Valeria Gurr, director of external affairs for the American Federation for Children. "All educational choices should be kept in the hands of parents," says Gurr. "Any choice can be made in schools by these individuals, as well as by sharing information about those they prefer to.

The Nevada School Choice Coalition, a collaboration with the American Federation for Children, has planned the event.

The Conference Center of Las Vegas is located at 6590 Bermuda Rd, and parking is free. Families can register in advance for the free event and see photos from the 2019 school fair at.

Each January, participants organize tens of thousands of activities to increase awareness about school choice in all 50 states. The Week is nonpartisan and does not advocate for legislation.
