I wholeheartedly believe that every student must have the opportunities I had to build a successful life, no matter where they are born or which zip code they live in. Fulfilling this promise depends on the strength of our nation’s single greatest lever for advancement: a high-quality education. In Miami-Dade, we have come a long way, but we have a long way to go. Working together, we can strengthen our public schools to ensure they provide the high-quality education that each of our students deserve – and must have – to grow, thrive, and realize their full potential. Education is the great equalizer. It has made a world of difference to me. Join me in this movement!
