Presidential Proclamation For National School Choice Week

Yesterday President Donald Trump issued a Proclamation (full text) declaring January 22 through January 28 as National School Choice Week. The Proclamation reads in part:
Our country is home to many great schools and many extraordinary teachers -- whether they serve in traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private or religious schools, or in homeschooling environments....
As our country celebrates National School Choice Week, I encourage parents to evaluate the educational opportunities available for their children.  I also encourage State lawmakers and Federal lawmakers to expand school choice for millions of additional students.
