Why School Choice Matters: Meet Jamie

Meet Jamie:

Jamie is an integral part of their classroom community at PA Distance. That wasn’t always the case. Jamie is a gender-fluid student who was neither understood nor supported at their previous school. Not only did Jamie face merciless bullying by peers, the school did not step in to help—they even contributed with thoughtless comments. Jamie’s parents sought to work with teachers and administrators only to be met with silence and frustration. These thoughtful parents realized their child could not thrive in their current school environment. That’s why they turned to PA Distance. PA Distance gave Jamie a fresh start. In the supportive context of PA Distance, Jamie is able to learn and grow without having to worry about taunts from peers and insensitivity from teachers. Now, Jamie is growing academically and socially with the help and support of her compassionate teachers and understanding peers. 

That is an opportunity that every child should have. #MySchoolMyChoice
