ExcelinEd CEO Patricia Levesque recently joined Voices4Ed and Pundits on the Porch to discuss one of her favorite subjects: education choice in Florida!
Voices4Ed: Should Public Dollars Go Towards Private School Choice?
April 3, 2019
In this episode of Education Post’s Voices4Ed podcast, ExcelinEd CEO Patricia Levesque talks about the expansion of the Florida voucher program that will enable more low-income students to gain access to state-backed scholarships for private schools. The discussion addresses concerns about the privatization of public education as well as the general state of education in Florida.
“All kids have different needs. What my son needs is very different than what my daughter needs. Because of that, I think what we all need to keep in mind is that education is the goal and schools are just the vehicle to that goal. And so, I want to be true to the goal: let every child succeed, give them the best fit and the best environment with the best teacher that will help them succeed.”Patricia Levesque on Voices4Ed
