K12 Chairman and CEO stands with Newark Prep students moments before ringing the opening bell at the NY Stock Exchange.
On Monday January 27th, I joined eight remarkable students and a dedicated group of teachers, parents and school leaders from the Newark (NJ) Prep Charter School to ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange and kick-off a nationwide bell-ringing celebration in support of school choice. We were also joined by representatives from National School Choice Week and parent leaders from PublicSchoolOptions.org.
You can watch the bell ringing ceremony here.
National School Choice Week is America's largest-ever series of education-related events, focusing on expanding education options for all children. Events stretched from New York City to California and spotlighted the importance of having choices in education and empowering parents with the freedom to decide on the school best suited for their children.
