National School Choice Week is Coming!

VIcki Alger

School choice isn’t just great for students. It’s great for teachers, too. When parents are free to choose their children’s schools, school compete for them. One of the best ways to attract parents and students is to hire the very best teachers—and make sure they stay by offering enriching work environments and competitive salaries.

National School Choice Week kicks off on January 25. Among those supporting school choice nationwide is the Association of American Educators:

 …the largest national, non-union, professional educators' organization, advancing the profession by offering a modern approach to teacher representation and educational advocacy, as well as promoting professionalism, collaboration and excellence without a partisan agenda.

Why support National School Choice Week? As AAE explains:

By shining a spotlight on options for teachers including charter, virtual, and parochial schools, we've been able to engage teachers in a discussion about the benefits of school choice for not only students, but classroom educators.

Specifically, just as there are no one-size-fits-all students, teachers are diverse. Be sure to check out AAE’s excellent video highlighting the experience of teachers in public district, charter, parochial, and online schools.
