Hoosiers encouraged to look into schooling options

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- All week long, parents and students in the Hoosier State are being encouraged to explore their numerous schooling options.

It’s all part of the 9th annual National School Choice Week.

The week will feature more than 900 events and activities across Indiana, including open houses, school fairs, homeschool information sessions and other celebrations.

Officials say the week is meant to encourage students and parents to find the best educational setting to help kids succeed.

“We all know kids are all different. They learn at different speeds in different ways. Having all of these options available to families so they can access the best educational environment, so their kid can thrive, it’s unbelievable,” said Betsy Wiley, president of the Institute for Quality Education.

Options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online learning and homeschooling.

In Indiana, 18% of students are attending schools other than the one closest to them.
