National School Choice Week EVENTS Jan 26 and Jan 27

Celebrate National School Choice Week

January 26 - Eagle River
January 27 - Woodruff

National School Choice Week will sound
call for immediate education reform.

Citizens from across the Northwoods will gather for a screening of the award-winning documentary, The Cartel on January 26, 2011 and January 27, 2011 to commemorate National School Choice Week.

Kim Simac, Founder of The Northwoods Patriots, is confirmed as a speaker at the event. This FREE event, which is sponsored by The Northwoods Patriots, will take place at 7:00 pm at Vilas Theatre at 214 East Wall Street in Eagle River on Wednesday the 26th, and on Thursday the 27th at 7:00pm at the Lakeland Cinema located in Woodruff, Wisconsin.

The Cartel—which portrays a public education system that is beholden to special interests, ignores the needs of parents, and misallocates hundreds of millions of dollars intended to help children—has served as a rallying cry for advocates who want to give parents immediate educational options for their children. The trailer and reviews are available at:

National School Choice Week, January 23-29, 2011, will shine an unprecedented spotlight on the need to dramatically improve educational outcomes for children and will highlight the benefits of school choice programs. Tens of thousands of people are expected to participate in events across the country during the week, which is being organized by more than 150 national and state groups.

“This event in Eagle River will continue an important debate on the need to provide parents with access to the best schools for their children,” said Kyle Olson, executive director of National School Choice Week. “At the end of the week, we hope that more parents will begin to demand enhanced educational options for their children and that lawmakers in Wisconsin and across the nation will take notice.”
