ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Students and families are encouraged to learn what Albuquerque schools have to offer at the annual School Choice Fair.


Representatives from 30 elementary, middle and high schools will be available to provide information and answer questions. The School Choice Fair features traditional public schools, as well as public charter schools, public magnet schools and other alternatives. 

It's an opportunity for New Mexico parents to analyze schools and compare them with the needs of their children. 

"The student that finds the education that fits their niche they are hopefully going to be more successful," said Kelly Callahan, director of school quality and support at the New Mexico Coalition for Charter Schools. 

The event is part of National School Choice Week, which lasts from Jan. 20 through Jan. 26.

National School Choice Week started in 2011 in order to give parents access to all education options available for their children.

The fair will be at the Albuquerque Convention Center today from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
