To the Editor:
Today, Oregon families have a range of diverse options for quality education for their children, whether they attend traditional brick-and-mortar public school, are homeschooled, attend virtual public school through Oregon Connections Academy, or enroll their children anywhere in between. Education is no longer one-size-fits-all; not every school is the right fit for every child. That’s why I’m celebrating National School Choice Week.
Families of students who are hospitalized or homebound, training to be actors, or learn at a faster or slower pace, should be empowered to choose the academic environment that best cultivates learning in their children.
I encourage you to learn more about the ways families are elevating the quality of education through choice by exploring the school choice options available to children. Please join me and Oregon Connections Academy in celebrating National School Choice Week and all of the quality educational options we have in Oregon.
