Board of Directors

Sandra Schwartz, Clerk
Sandra is an activist, social worker, member of a Quaker Meeting for 34 years, mother, friend, passionate about social justice and progressive education. She joined the CPFEA Board because she wanted to support the effort to offer a progressive educational model based on justice, peace and sustainability with a healthy dose of Quaker values to high school students. She was particularly intrigued by the partnership with MetWest and other Big Picture schools. She loved the idea of including urban youth in an experience that is often only available to the privileged, meaning people who know how to find and access these kinds of programs.
