Georgia Public Policy Foundation Celebrates National School Choice Week Jan. 22

Join experts Ashley Berner, Ben Scafidi in a discussion of education options for Georgia's children

ATLANTA , GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 / — If no two children in a family have the same personalities and needs, imagine what it's like for the children in a classroom. Children have different personalities, learn at different paces and understand in different ways.

It's why National School Choice Week is held every year: to celebrate options for children to achieve and excel no matter their academic needs. And it's why the Georgia Public Policy Foundation's event is one of 40,000 events and activities across America celebrating National School Choice Week 2019 from January 20-26.

The speakers are Dr. Ashley Berner, deputy director at the Johns Hopkins University Institute for Education Policy, and Georgia Public Policy Foundation Senior Fellow Dr. Ben Scafidi.
