CLEVELAND — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will light up yellow and red to raise awareness about K-12 education opportunities during National School Choice Week, Jan. 24-30.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will join more than two dozen landmarks and notable buildings across the country, including Anchorage JL Tower in Alaska, the Big Four Bridge at Waterfront Park in Kentucky and Indiana, the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge in Nebraska and Indiana, Niagara Falls and the Helmsley Building in New York and the King and Queen Towers in Atlanta.
The landmarks' red and yellow lights will serve as a way to celebrate National School Choice Week 2021 at a time when large in-person gatherings are replaced with virtual celebrations due to the coronavirus pandemic.
National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on education options of children. According to its website, the week focuses "equally on traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private and home education options."
"During this challenging school year, we can all use rays of light,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week, in a news release. “More than ever, families need the ability to choose from a variety of learning environments to find the one that works best for them. We are so excited to see American landmarks shine for school choice, and we invite everyone to use the Week to share what school choice means to them, learn more about their options, and work toward effective education options for every child.”
