I am Laurie Greenstein Kandel, and am running for Broward School Board. My children are grown, but I remember worrying about a shooting or other act of terrorism that might occur at their school. Today, there are parents, students, and teachers that don’t just worry, but deal daily with PTSD and grief after the shooting in our community at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. I also know first-hand about children who struggle to achieve their potential in school. As both an attorney and educator, I am ready to fight to make sure your child succeeds academically, feels safe, and is safe.
