AFC Policy Summit: Sandeep’s Success Story
At the AFC National Policy Summit, the educational choice community gathers for the opportunity to discuss policy, but also offers an opportunity to hear from those who have directly benefited from choice programs.
Sandeep Thomas is one of those students who benefited from having the ability to choose the school that best suited his needs. Sandeep was an orphan in India suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder when he was adopted by a family here in the United States. He struggled with traditional public school, but his parents understood the importance of education and would stop at nothing to try to find a good fit for their son. Eventually, they found virtual learning and Sandeep succeeded in the program.
Hear from Sandeep and see how the ability for him to choose his method of education allowed him to become the person he is today.
