Mr. Edmond knows there's an inequity in education in Mississippi, especially for black and brown students in underserved communities. He wants to change the future for our youth through education. He firmly believes that ALL children deserve the opportunity to thrive in public school education with the adequate resources and support needed to be competitive with their counterparts. Every student deserves educators who will hold them accountable to a high bar of excellence while meeting them where they are. Every day he chooses to lead educators with this in mind.
