ResponsiveEd, one of the nation’s largest charter school operators, played a major role in five days worth of National School Choice Week events culminating with the state-wide Stronger Together rally at Minute Maid Park in Houston on January 27. In addition to hosting a booth at the large-scale weekend event, ResponsiveEd hosted three local rallies across the state during the week and attended an awards reception:
January 23 – (host) Tyler Classical Academy (featuring Councilmember Bob Westbrook)
January 24 – (attendee) Legislative Champions Awards Reception (honoring Gov. Abbott, Lt.

January 25 – (host) Premier High School – San Antonio East (featuring State Representative
Barbara Gervin-Hawkins and Windcrest Mayor Dan Reese)
January 26 – (host) Founders Classical Academy of Leander (featuring State Representative
“All of the activities we were involved in made the week exciting, and it just goes to show how involved families across the state have become in supporting the right to choose how and where their children are educated,” says ResponsiveEd’s Online Media Coordinator Berkeley Bryant. “We’re proud of our parents, teachers and students for the great support throughout the celebratory week and throughout the rest of the year as well.”
At the Houston rally, the ResponsiveEd team shared information about its 70 campuses, gave away wristbands, temporary tattoos, balloons and other items to hundreds of current and prospective students. The Houston event had an attendance of nearly 3,000 people who turned out to support school choice. According to the Texas Charter Schools Association, there are more than 273,000 students enrolled in public charter schools in Texas and another 141,000 on waiting lists.
