Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Today, the Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity launched #AmplifyChoice, an online campaign which will run for the duration of National School Choice Week. The website, AmplifyChoice.com, will serve as an aggregation hub to promote articles, opinion pieces, blog posts, and social media feeds from organizations, lawmakers, and individuals advocating for education reform.
“#AmplifyChoice will be a social media-based hub for school choice, compiling real-time data from school choice events across the country as well as offering resources and ways to get involved,” said Franklin Center Senior Vice President Erik Telford. “Our vision for #AmplifyChoice is that it will become the one-stop digital hub for National School Choice Week.”
#AmplifyChoice features live Twitter streams of selected school choice-related handles, sortable into categories, including organizations, lawmakers, and advocates. Other interactive elements of #AmplifyChoice include an Educating America section, featuring links to news articles, prominent blogs and resources for education reform. The site also features video updates from the National School Choice Week whistle-stop tour.
“We are thrilled to once again be taking part in National School Choice Week and helping to inform policy makers about the importance of giving parents a choice in their child’s education,” Telford said. “#AmplifyChoice will help take National School Choice Week to the next level and serve as a resource for those who want to get involved.”
Other Franklin Center activities this week will include a webinar with School Choice Wisconsin president Jim Bender, a tweet-up facilitated by State Policy Network, a Google Hangout with bloggers Breeanne Howe and Kira Davis as well as Arizona State Rep. Adam Kwasman, and a webcast conversation with education reform expert Grover Norquist. To learn more, visit AmplifyChoice.com.
