A Parent’s Role in Delivery of Customized Education

In the attached video; Rose Fernandez, parent and advocate for educational choice, discusses the important role parents play in delivering an individualized, customized education for their virtual learning children.

 She is a parent in Wisconsin who has a pretty compelling story to tell. After legislators bowing to union pressure closed a virtual charter school there, she rallied local parents in only five days and got that decision reversed.

She later ran for public office and got the local union and anti-charter folks to spend over a million dollars to defeat her. Kind of interesting, when you consider that she’s never had any political experience, and is a nurse by training and career.

She’s a big proponent of blended learning, online learning, and virtual charters. Here’s her thoughts on why parents are a great lever for education reform in America. And why there needs to be more of them at conferences
