The Alaska Policy Forum is hosting school choice events in Anchorage and Soldotna. The speaker will be Kevin Chavous, Board Chair of Democrats for Education Reform, Board member of the Black Alliance for Educational Options, and Board member of the American Federation for Children. Mr. Chavous led the charge in Washington, D.C. for charter schools and the D. C school voucher program.
Most recently, he worked with Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, to get school voucher legislation enacted this past year. Yes, school choice is non-partisan because it’s about the kids, not the adults. Chavous will speak on how choice benefits everyone, regardless of socioeconomic standing. Even the public school system benefits from competition.
Come hear Mr. Chavous in Soldotna on February 12th at the Soldotna Sports Center beginning at 7 pm. He will be speaking in Anchorage on February 14th at the Anchorage Museum at 7 pm. both events are free. Come cut through the chaff and noise the NEA is broadcasting across Alaska. Chavous will also appear at a joint House/Senate Judiciary, Finance, Education meeting on February 13th at 1:30. Go to akl.tv to listen on-line.
