Expanding Opportunity Through School Choice

Generation Opportunity is a proud partner of National School Choice Week

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Generation Opportunity, the nation's leading youth advocacy group for 18-29 year olds, is joining National School Choice Week as a proud partner. Beginning January 27 th, National School Choice Week will be marked by a series of events and activities across the country focused on highlighting success stories, advancing school choice and education reform in America, and promoting "effective education options for every child." The quality of America's education system has a direct impact on the future success of the young people it is set up to serve and, ultimately, on the nation's ability to sustain a cutting-edge workforce that is able to compete in the global economy.


"Generation Opportunity supports commonsense policy ideas that can expand opportunities for young people, both now and in the future, as many of us are proud parents, committed teachers, caring older brothers and sisters, and active members of our community. We see firsthand the positive impact that emerges when parents are empowered to make the right decisions for their children," said Terence D. Grado, Director for National and State Policy at Generation Opportunity. "We are not a partisan generation and are instead focused on achieving results. School choice enjoys broad bipartisan support and has a clear track record of success. Thus, we are excited to join this broad coalition that has come together to advance opportunity through innovation in education."

In 2011, Generation Opportunity supported school choice advocates in New Jersey in an effort to pass the Opportunity Scholarship Act in partnership with the Garden State Education Reform Coalition, among other efforts. Grassroots organizers launched the "Jersey Proud School Choice Tour" and helped organize a rally at the State House in Trenton. Generation Opportunity's grassroots field team will participate in Virginia's 2013 School Choice Day at the Capitol, partnering with the Virginia Coalition for Public School Options for a rally in Richmond. The group also plans to participate in other events this week to hear firsthand from students, teachers, and parents about their priorities and concerns.
