Meet Quanda Francis, Candidate for New York's 10th Congressional District
Quanda S. Francis is a visionary leader who believes America is going in the wrong direction. She believes it is important to modernize our nation’s infrastructure, revolutionize K-12 education, reduce poverty, fund NYCHA, codifying abortion rights into federal law and invest heavily in community and workforce development.
K-12 Education Plan
My top legislative priority is K-12 and higher education. How do we prepare students to assume the challenges in a depressed economy? What should be the de-facto competencies (beyond standardized tests) students should possess that will ease their transition from high school to college?” It is important to reexamine the framework outlined in the “Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which was signed into law in December of 2015. We need to set our students up for success and get serious about ensuring the United States has a first-class K-12 21st education system. I have discussed incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning into the K-12 education system to identify student learning styles in an effort to improve student academic outcomes. I will also push to develop a nationwide Systemic Special Education Improvement Plan which will enhance key procedural safeguards in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Community Development Plan
Communities where we do not invest will create populations that reflect the neglect they were shown. As your next representative of Congress, Quanda will fight for investments to dramatically expand proven public health and community solutions to keep our communities safe; fund repairs in NYCHA and address those climate change issues that adversely affect our district.
Modern Education Agenda
Revolutionizing NYC’s antiquated Education System will unlock the vast potential of our population to invent, innovate and excel.
Utilizing the power of AI (Artificial Intelligence or “Machine Learning”) will allow untapped talent and abilities to be able to be found, fed and nurtured.
Personalized Education Plan
PEPs (Personalized Education Plans) offer a measurable and scalable approach to improving educational outcomes for all NYC students.
Early Skill Identification
Identifying our children’s skills and aptitudes early allows us to provide them with the resources they need to nurture those abilities.
A Whole New
Set of Challenges
For us to survive and thrive through the challenges ahead, we need a mission that unites us all: I want New York City to be a place where everyone has a fair chance, where opportunity abounds, and our behaviors towards one another reflect compassion and benevolence. However, I can not do it without you. my fellow candidates are fueled by large donations from the rich and powerful. My campaign is fueled by determination, cooperation, and perseverance and It is time for the people to have a voice and a choice.
To truly grow the talents of our youth, we should use all the powerful tools at our disposal. Artificial Intelligence can recognize specific skillsets and gifts in students, and cater their education to help those unique talents flourish.
Quanda’s professional career as a Data Scientist has given her the solid foundation to harness and empower the potentials of Machine Learning for all NYC students, of all ages.
