AF-Nashville & Beacon Celebrate National School Choice Week! (Virtual)
January 27, 2021 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The coronavirus pandemic has brought a wave of school closures, many of which will remain closed for the forseeable future. As students have struggled to adjust to virtual learning, parents without other educational options have struggled to juggle at-home learning with working to support their families. The last several months have certainly underscored the importance of school choice and empowering families to make decisions about how to educate their children.
RSVP and join America’s Future and the Beacon Center as we celebrate National School Choice Week! This month, we’re excited to host Jonathan Butcher, Senior Policy Analyst for the Center for Education Policy at The Heritage Foundation. Grab a drink and join us on Zoom on Wednesday, January 27 at 5 pm CT!
