The Faces of Education Reform

  • Cristina Maxwell
“Florida school choice has allowed my three kids to excel in different educational settings based on their individual learning styles and needs.

Funds should go toward our students’ success, wherever and however they learn!”

"Nicolas was diagnosed with a brain tumor, just after he graduated from Kindergarten. We went through a full year of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and it was really a struggle to save his life. When we were ready to start school again, we realized that none of the choices that we had were going to work for him."
