Lesley Poole quote

If you knew your local public school was limiting your child’s success, what would you do? For millions of parents across the nation, this isn’t a hypothetical question.

At the 2015 National Summit on Education Reform, attendees had the chance to hear firsthand the powerful effect school choice is having on families across the nation. You can have the same experience now that #EIE15 keynote and general sessions are online.

During the session “Faces and Voices of Reform: Why Our Actions Matter,” a panel of students, parents and educators shared their stories with Campbell Brown, the co-founder and editor of “The Seventy Four.” These individuals have dealt with the reality of schools that cannot or will not meet students’ needs, but they have also witnessed the life-changing possibilities a simple choice can offer.Katie Swingle, Florida Quote
