Congratulations Mr. Thompson. Elected public service is an important but challenging role. Your wisdom, service, and sensible leadership is greatly appreciated. In your service on the Education Committee in 2013-2014 you may find the Jesuit High School model www.cristoreytc.org interesting and compelling. At Rotary we heard a speaker explain their methodology, success, and cost (a fraction of public school) I found impressive.
