- Former State Senator Patricia Farley says that as a parent of four children with four different education needs, one-stop solutions don’t fit every child. She explains her concerns of the public education platform not addressing how to meet children where they are, noting that sometimes children need a private or charter school to meet their needs. She agrees with a robust, strong public education system, but says that we also need answers for parents whose children might not fit in the public school equation successfully.
