Organizers said parents have options including private or public schools, homeschooling or online learning or even.magnet or charter schools.

Organizers said National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort.
Locally, there is a rally planned in Raleigh, North Carolina Tuesday and at the South Carolina Statehouse on Wednesday.
