Time for Change: Students are looking to inspire at a Rally for Educational Choice

FRANKFORT, Ky., Jan. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Students gather on the Capitol in honor of education choice on Monday, January 24, at 10:30 a.m., as students cheer for choice-themed rallies and remarks from special guest speakers who have benefitted from school choice.

After the rally, students will have the opportunity to see the Capitol museum and learn about the citizens who are behind the state's educational choices program.

The Frankfort Capitol Rally comes on the back of a tumultuous year for Kentucky education, with a new Education Opportunity Account program going through the legislature, but is being challenged in court.

"It has been tremendously rewarding to see Kentucky join the national movement to increase their children's education," said Andrew Vandiver, president of EdChoice Kentucky. "Thanks to the principled leadership of the Kentucky General Assembly, 2021 was a historic year.

The rally will be held in conjunction with the National School Choice Week celebration in 2022, which will feature more than 26,000 school choice events across all 50 states.

The event is organized by EdChoice KY, a coalition focusing on education education programs.

At 300 W. Broadway St., the Old State Capitol is located.

The National School Choice Week spotlights effective K-12 education opportunities for children, focusing on traditional public, charter, magnet, and online, school, and home education offerings. Every January, participants plan tens of thousands of celebrations such as school fairs and open houses to increase awareness about school choice in all 50 states.
