Public education is essential for families, because when children are in school, their parents can go to work knowing their kids are in good hands. However, traditional education methods can be difficult for students with disabilities. Luckily, the Children First Education Fund provides scholarships and other aid to those who need it most. On this episode, Executive Director Ronnie Daniel explains how donations from both individuals and businesses can make a positive impact on Utah families.
