standardized testsAs parents are encouraged to explore the options for their kids' education, National School Choice Week continues to grow each year.

The nationwide celebration advocating school choice options began in 2011 and has grown consistently each year. And "with more than 51,300 events and activities all across the country and an estimated 13.7 million people involved," National School Choice Week President Andrew Campanella says this year is no different.

He encourages parents who are not satisfied with their children's education to immediately look for options.

Campanella, Andrew (National School Choice Week)"We encourage parents to start looking into their school choice options now, in January, as opposed to waiting until summer break. If you start the school search process during National School Choice Week, you will find more options and seats available in schools than you will if you wait," Campanella tells OneNewsNow.

The National School Choice Week president's book, The School Choice Roadmap: Seven Steps to Finding the Right School for Your Child, is due to be released this week ahead of the event, which will run Sunday, January 26, through the first of February.
