Addressing the crowd was WNBA star Lisa Leslie, who told her story of why she believes having a voice in education is important for all families – no matter their income or where they live.
While in Georgia, Lisa sat down with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and discussed her involvement in promoting education options across the country. In the interview, which aired earlier this afternoon, Lisa told Suzanne that while she received fantastic grades in high school, she realized her education did not adequately prepare her for applying and to and succeeding in college. Her personal experience as a student inspired her to search for an educational option for her own children that would adequately address their needs, and ultimately prompted her to get involved in promoting access to educational choice schools for all families.
