About this Episode
America's Roundtable, co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy are joined by Virginia Walden Ford, a pioneer of America's school choice movement and a patriotic leader transforming our nation's educational system. Few leaders in our time have risked so much to boldly stand for principles and counter the wave of strong opposition brought forth by politicians in our nation's capital, lobbyists and the powerful teacher unions.
Virginia Walden Ford's inspiring journey and her principled leadership is paving the way for new states to embrace school choice and empower parents. Her message will inspire audiences, and in fact, her story is shared through a feature film titled "Miss Virginia.” "Miss Virginia" is a major motion picture starring Uzo Aduba, Matthew Modine, Niles Fitch, Vanessa Williams, and a spectacular ensemble cast. Watch Miss Virginia on Netflix, iTunes or Amazon today.
The Reason magazine writes: “The new movie Miss Virginia is based on the unlikely story of Virginia Walden Ford, who, as a single mother in Washington, D.C., in the early 2000s, fought to create a federally-funded private school voucher program that would allow poor kids—including her son—to escape failing public schools. Against long odds and institutional hostility, she succeeded and is played with fiery passion by Orange Is the New Black's Uzo Aduba. Matthew Modine, known for roles in Full Metal Jacket, Weeds, and Stranger Things, co-stars as a sympathetic congressman who helps win congressional authorization for the program.”
