Rep. Wilson to Tour South Carolina 2nd Congressional District Schools

COLUMBIA, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#schoolchoice–U.S. Representative Joe Wilson will celebrate the National School Choice
Week by touring multiple educational options Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan.

The tour will include Horse Creek Academy, a charter school in Aiken,
from 2 to 3 p.m. Jan. 17.

Rep. Wilson will also visit Aiken Area Home Educators, a homeschool
group in Aiken, and Meadow Glenn Middle School in Lexington. These
visits are closed to the media.

National School Choice Week 2017 (January 22-28, 2017) will make history
with more than 21,000 school choice events across all 50 states. Rep.
Wilson will be in Washington, D.C. during National School Choice Week
and will recognize it in his district the week before.

“I’m grateful to recognize National School Choice week by visiting
schools across the Second Congressional District,” Rep. Wilson said.
“Choice is critical in education—students and parents, not the federal
government, should have the option to choose what is best for their
family. I look forward to working in Congress to ensure that all parents
and students have the opportunity to choose their education—whether it
is homeschooling, public school, private school, charter school, or
magnet school. I especially appreciate the value of educators, as my
wife Roxanne is a retired school teacher.”

As a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort, National School

for students, families, and communities around the country.
