On January 25, 2013, National School Choice Week (NSCW) begins its coast-to-coast Whistle-Stop Train Tour. Along the way, the historic train will stop in 14 cities at school choice rallies. The Show-Me Institute is proud to partner with NSCW in hosting the event at the train’s fourth stop in Kansas City.

School choice is an issue that impacts all people and one that all should be able to support. The basic principle is that families should have the ability to choose the best educational option for their child. From a practical perspective, we see that giving families options improves educational outcomes for students. In short, school choice works.

We hope you will join us in Kansas City as we celebrate all forms of school choice.
