"National School Choice Week" Fueled by Major Right-Wing Funders and Corporate Lobby Groups

MADISON, WI -

With 32 governors proclaiming this week "School Choice Week," and more than 16,000 scheduled events listed on the promotional website, National School Choice Week (NSCW) has become a big deal, and not by accident.

Launched five years ago by the Gleason Family Foundation—which spent more than $4.3 million on the project in 2014—the week has grown rapidly through the backing of advocacy groups and deep pockets of funders focused on promoting charters, vouchers, and tax credits that aid private schools, including religious and for-profit ventures.
