Video: Cindi Williams’ national perspective on Washington education reform

Washington Charter School Commission member Cindi Williams wields a macro and micro lens when it comes to viewing public education. She speaks about the power and promise of education from experiences rooted in helping create federal policies for former President George W. Bush that  impact millions of school kids — and from advocating for one particular boy, her young son, who has special learning needs.

Williams is the fifth guest in our occasional “Education Conversations” video series. Watch below:

Editorial writer Lynne K. Varner asked Williams to respond to three questions asked of every previous interviewee:

  • What does education mean to you?
  • What does an ideal education system look like?
  • What’s one reform Washington needs now?

“Education Conversations” is an occasional series from The Seattle Times editorial board, highlighting the latest thinking in education.

These short segments expand on our “3 to 23″ education initiative, an ongoing effort to redefine the state’s duty to educate children between the ages of 3 and 23. Watch all of our videos so far at this link.
