To go along with the national recognition, this week has been declared "School Choice Week in Illinois" by the Governor. The purpose of recognizing this week is to provide families in the state with the opportunity to research and evaluate all of the K-12 school choices available for their children in time for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. Additionally, the week is a good time to raise awareness for the importance of providing every child with effective education options. Throughout the week, there are currently more than 900 events planned in Illinois, and over 16,000 events going on in the nationwide recognition of School Choice Week.
