Award-winning champion of public education and author, Jamie Vollmer, of the highly acclaimed book, Schools Cannot Do It Alone, will be at the Vero Beach High School Performance Arts Center on August 15, 2016, at 4:00pm and 6:00 p.m. delivering his “Schools Can’t Do It Alone!” presentation for FREE.

Vollmer’s presentations combine statistics, logic, and humor to energize and encourage educators, business leaders, and community groups to work together to build successful schools.

He has spent the last twenty-five years working with school districts, education associations, foundations, and chambers of commerce across the nation to halt the erosion of public trust and build support for America’s public schools. His primary goal is to help educators and their allies remove the obstacles to progress and create schools that unfold the full potential of every child.

Dr. Rendell said, “We are fortunate to live in a community that is very supportive of public education. We are blessed to have numerous organizations working together to improve the lives of our students. Mr. Vollmer understands the challenges facing our schools and his insight will help us strengthen these collaborative efforts.  I invite, and encourage, anyone and everyone linked to the education of our children to attend the presentation.”
