“All kids have different needs. What my son needs is very different than what my daughter needs. Because of that, I think what we all need to keep in mind is that education is the goal and schools are just the vehicle to that goal. And so, I want to be true to the goal: let every child succeed, give them the best fit and the best environment with the best teacher that will help them succeed.” – Patricia Levesque
