If you’ve ever wondered about our roots and our core values as an organization, then you really should check this episode of STANDcast out because our guest this week is our very own CEO and co-founder Jonah Edelman.
Jonah shares with us how growing up surrounded by civil rights leaders and public servants led him to where he is today and how that legacy of service influences the work we are doing here at Stand—including the fight for school funding and teacher pay raises here in Oklahoma.
His message to those of us involved in this fight? “Stick with it. Because it’s the right fight.”
He also offers his thoughts on vouchers and what’s happening in education policy on the federal level, items we know are top of mind for many education advocates these days.
