LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has signed a proclamation celebrating School Choice Week, an annual effort to promote private alternatives to public schools.

The event on Thursday came one day after the annual “I Love Public Schools Day,” an effort to tout the importance of K-12 public schools.

Ricketts, a Republican, supports charter schools and voucher programs that allow low-income students to attend private schools. The governor says School Choice Week highlights “the work we have to do to give more students and families more opportunities to get the education they need to achieve their dreams.”
