Wellington Student Discusses Education With Rep. Pafford

Local student and Wellington resident Talia Fradkin, a Florida Virtual School legislative ambassador, met recently with State Rep. Mark Pafford (D-District 86) to discuss education issues. “Online education allows students to enrich their educational experience beyond what is offered at the brick-and-mortar schools through greater access to electives such as foreign languages and Advanced Placement classes,” Fradkin said. Also in attendance were Florida Virtual School United States history instructor Jennifer Lachmund and Florida Virtual School geometry instructor Ricardo Roque. The meeting was held to discuss education and educational funding, and spotlight educational issues in Florida. Florida Virtual School, a public school option, offers more than 120 courses to all students, including AP classes, core courses and electives.
