National School Choice Week - Los Angeles Celebration


During the last week in January, tens of thousands of celebratory events will take place across the country to raise awareness of the different K-12 education options available to children and families. Started in 2011, National School Choice Week is now the world’s largest annual celebration of opportunity in education.

Please join California School Choice on Saturday, January 25th at the USC Verdugo Hills Hospital for lunch and a special Townhall discussion with featured speakers Rebecca Friedrichs, Gina Gleason, Christina Laster, Dr. Vicki Alger and Larry Sand.

There is no charge to attend this event. Box lunch provided. Donations appreciated.
