This is National School Choice Week, and on Tuesday, January 24, 300-plus Colorado Springs students rallied at City Hall in to support citizens’ choice.
Thirty-three students, plus Board members, administrators, teachers, and parents from Rocky Mountain Classical Academy represented Falcon District 49 at the rally.
Fifth-grade student Isabelle Wood stood front and center to watch Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers’s remarks. Wood said, “The mayor explained how school choice helps teachers and parents. Choice reflects freedoms.”
Dr. Steven Pomeroy, an administrator, commented that teachers “Want students to understand freedoms of speech, assembly, and petition. A rally that helps education, particularly given Falcon District 49’s broad choice portfolio, illustrates democratic practices. Our Student Council attended, and they saw how to apply First Amendment freedoms within American governance.”
