Nick Gillespie of Reason interviews Virginia Walden Ford, mother and education activist whose own personal dissatisfaction with the DC Public Schools drove her to fight for more and better options not only for son but for every child—the film Miss Virginia tells her story. The movie is now in select theaters and available on iTunes, GooglePlay and AmazonPrime. Read my review here.

Here she is, in her own, words talking about her life, her son, and her disappointment with current presidential candidates on the issue of educational freedom.
