BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The EBR school system held the first ever "Right Choice School Fair" Saturday to show off various programs and activities the school system has.
Over 28 elementary, middle and high schools went to the Cortana Mall to show off everything from robotics programs, culinary programs, and alternative education options to show off what students learn inside the classroom.
"I think if you go to any of the competition schools to us, to the public schools, you're not going to see a middle school that offers all of these different variety of programs." Says EBR school district representative Keith Bromery, "They're really intended in a way, even if the students don't go into those as a career, to keep their interests going."
Leaders say they held this event at a mall in hopes of drawing big crowds so the community can see how many programs public schools have
