It's an important day across the mountain states. Not only are legislative sessions opening in Idaho and Washington, but MSPC is launching a new education effort called "Education Choice Improves Outcomes."
The interactive effort will aim to answer questions about education choice, dispel myths, inform citizens, gather feedback and raise awareness.
This is not about shutting down public schools. As a state and region, we need to do better to make sure parents and families have more choices, because when they have more choices, the outcomes for our children improve. Our recent polling has shown strong support for education choice options - when Idahoans know what it is.
What will our effort include?
· A seven-part video series explaining what education choice is, including tackling six common myths
· A new, in-depth study detailing options for legislators interested in advancing education choice (to be released in Boise Thursday night)
· An opportunity for families to share how they would benefit from education choice
