Homeschoolers have been invited to participate in a National School Choice Week celebration. For the first time, National School Choice Week will be stopping in North Carolina for one of their whistle-stops on a nationwide train tour. National School Choice Week, a non-partisan celebration underscoring the importance of having high-quality education options for all children, has been around since 2011 and hosts thousands of annual celebrations across the country.  Over 5,500 events are already confirmed for National School Choice Week this year which runs January 26-February 1, 2014.

The event is being coordinated by Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina. The celebration will be a series of speeches and performances and will take place in the Carolinas Aviation Museum, 4672 First Flight Drive, Charlotte, NC 28208. The event will begin at 8:30 am and NCHE president, Kevin McClain, will be speaking about home education at about 8:55 am.

There will be about 50 seats for available for homeschool parents and students. Among the dignitaries speaking there will be well known politicians and public figures. The news media will be present, and this is a wonderful opportunity to get positive public recognition of home education. Please plan to attend to present a positive impression of home educators.

If you plan to come, please email Spencer Mason at by Saturday, January 11 to let him know how many people will be in your group.
