  • As an advocate and fighter for the rights of children to receive an Free and Approprite Public Education (FAPE) I cannot wait to see real life changes in the field. This should not be a fight, but a cause, that for once and for all is a mandate in the United States of Amercia. To really be a leader and an example in the world, we must do right by our people. We must educate the citizens so they not only are informed electorates but participants in a country that no longer is about “Me” “Me” “Me” but “We” “We” “We”. This is a giant step forward and one that I will support and use in my work going forward. Go Julian.
