Gordon Surface, Member / Education Lead

This experience has strengthened his belief that providing a rich educational experience for children at the pre-school level is absolutely essential if we expect our children to learn, grow and thrive as members of the learning community, a community that includes parents, teachers, administrators and students. It ultimately leads to our children becoming thoughtful, active members of our participatory democracy.
