Supporters gathered in the Capitol Theatre on Monday to hear from a varied group of speakers including: David Hansen, executive director of Quality School Choice (Ohio Department of Education); Nicole Graves, The Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools’ Teacher of the Year; EdChoice scholarship recipient Walter Woodard; and Representative Andrew Brenner (R-Powell) who read Governor John Kasich’s resolution declaring January 25-31 School Choice Week in Ohio.
