Apex Learning, a recognized pioneer and innovator in online learning for secondary education, partnered with the Argus Foundation, a non-profit organization in Sarasota County, Florida, that seeks to bring together business leaders from diverse industries to facilitate communication and benefit the community. The two groups hosted the collaborative luncheon for Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart to share her thoughts on the future of education in Florida.
Former Florida educator and Apex Learning account executive Marcia Philosophos introduced Commissioner Stewart to the group, citing her commitment to supporting equity of opportunity for all students in Florida, the most diverse state in the nation. Philosophos also recognized Superintendent of Sarasota County Schools, Dr. Todd Bowden, who was in attendance, for the district’s commitment to personalize learning to meet diverse student needs.
Commissioner Stewart, appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott in 2013, spoke about her mission and vision for education throughout the State of Florida and emphasized that her top priority is closing the achievement gap.
“We are the number one state in the nation in addressing the needs of our most vulnerable students,” said Stewart. “I believe that when you can, in fact, do that work, you’re going to see the state’s economy improve.”
