MADISON - Educators, parents, and students, will rally to celebrate all of Wisconsin’s K-12 education options at the State Capitol on Tuesday, Jan. 28 from noon to 1 p.m.

UPDATE (at 4 p.m., Jan. 21): The office of Vice President Mike Pence has announced that he will be in Madison to participate in the rally.

Nearly 700 students, teachers and legislators are expected to attend Wisconsin’s flagship event for National School Choice Week.


Musical and artistic performances by students will be featured at the rally. Choral performances from Carter’s Christian Academy, Blessed Sacrament School, and Wisconsin Lutheran High School; prose and poetry readings from Granville Lutheran School and Lighthouse Christian School; and cheers and chants from Institute of Technology in Academics and Shining Star Christian Schools will make up the program.

This event is planned to coincide with the history-making celebration of National School Choice Week 2020, which will feature more than 50,000 school choice events across all 50 states.

“2020 will be a historic benchmark for Wisconsin,” said Tammy Olivas, outreach director for Hispanics for School Choice. “We are excited to kickstart the 30-year anniversary of the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program at the State Capitol during National School Choice Week.”
