Joe Freedman played a key role in the successful drive for charter schools in Alberta. A medical doctor, he was alarmed at the caliber of education his two daughters were receiving. With all the money being spent on education, he decided there must be a some way to turn this money into quality education. His rigorous research and dedication helped convince the public and decision-makers there indeed was a better way, and charter schools were launched in Alberta. Now, for the AIMS conference, he is preparing a "how-to" kit on turning charter schools into a reality in Atlantic Canada.
