WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), a proud original cosponsor of a Senate-passed resolution supporting National School Choice Week, wants to share why school choice is important to you and your family.

The National School Choice Week resolution designates the week of January 25 through January 31, 2015, as “National School Choice Week.” During this week, Boozman will feature stories and pictures submitted by Arkansans about the importance of school choice across our state.

“Education decisions need to be made by parents, teachers and community leaders at the state and local level – not Washington. We have made great progress in Arkansas where parents have the opportunity to send their children to schools outside of their designated district and charter and magnet schools provide additional education options. I am working with my colleagues to include school choice in federal education reforms. I look forward to reading your stories and sharing why school choice is important to Arkansans,” Boozman said.
