How District 2 candidates answer questions on public education: Commissioner Charlotte Burrie, District 2
Our children are our future. For them to carry on, they need a well rounded education. From what I have observed, children are not receiving the opportunity to learn and enjoy the arts, music, or our country’s history, which would make them well rounded citizens. The education system needs to change to offer our children the type of education that we, as adults received.
Serving on the city commission does not give the opportunity to change the school system, but I will be working with Pompano Elementary School in their Hero program. I have had the pleasure of speaking at various schools about the importance of education and will continue to do what I can both as an elected official and a citizen.
