Advocating for School Choice - The Power of YOUR Voice!

School choice advocates at the 2016 Parent Advocacy Boot Camp.

On July 10th over 100 teachers and parents met in Washington D.C. at Capitol Hill for the 2016 Parent Advocacy Boot Camp hosted by PublicSchoolOptions.org.  Jennifer Schultze, Wyoming Virtual Academy teacher describes how her advocacy efforts began and suggests ways you can get involved in your state.

When I first started my online teaching career, 7 years ago, I remember thinking what a great ‘choice’ it was for my family, personally.  Over the next year, I began to discover that just like I had made a career choice that was the best fit for my family, parents had the same motivation to find a school choice that best fit their family’s needs.
