National School Choice Week started on Sunday in Arizona and across the nation.
There are nearly 1,000 events planned in the state to raise awareness about K-12 school choice.
The events in Arizona, which are independently planned and independently funded, include everything from information sessions and open houses at schools to rallies, policy discussions, and movie screenings organized by community groups, organizers said. Highlighted events include a large school fair and luncheon featuring Gov. Doug Ducey Jan. 26 at 11:30 a.m. at the Arizona State Capitol Rose Garden.
Organizers say School Choice Week provides Arizona families with a chance to research and evaluate the K-12 school choices ahead of 2017-2018 school year.
