Wren graduated from Patrick County High School and is a product of Virginia’s public schools. Wren knows that our schools function best when decisions are made at the local level. Virginia’s first priority in Richmond needs to be getting our kids back in school. COVID-19 has shown that Southwest’s students have been left behind without access to reliable internet, virtual learning, and alternatives to meet today’s educational needs. School choice is essential to improving our educational system and that means expanding charter schools, investing in vocational training, and allowing parents to make their children’s educational decisions.
