The more I thought about it, the more passionate I became. I want to help more children find the best education possible. While the local public school may work for some students, it is not the answer for every child. We need options on the table to ensure all children have access to the education that best addresses their needs.
Thanks to my work with the American Federation for Children, I had the opportunity to share my story at National School Choice Week events in Atlanta, Georgia and Nashville, Tennessee. I instantly connected with the families in these cities who face the same obstacles my husband and I encountered. When your child’s school is failing to address your child’s needs, what do you do? Where do you go?
I decided to join the fight to ensure our children have access to educational options to help give a voice to the countless number of parents across the country who want to see their child succeed in a school that works.
