Leslie Boggs became active in her local PTA in Texas not only because she saw the need as a parent, but as a business owner she saw the need for a strong public education system to benefit students and businesses. Today, she is focused on building a system that provides an equitable education for all students, starting with funding and internet access. "Before, we were able to gloss over some of the inequities in this nation, and we can no longer do that," she says. "Our nation is changing a great deal and a lot of things are coming to the forefront that we have to address."
