George Bernard Shaw famously observed that “all progress comes from unreasonable people.” It’s a philosophy philanthropist Gary Chartrand has embraced over the course of his decades-long fight to ensure that Florida children have access to a strong public educational system that embraces 21st-century skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Only by reforming America’s public school system, argues Chartrand, will we develop the next generation of problem solvers. Gary Chartrand is the Executive Chairman of Acosta Sales and Marketing. The company employs more than 40,000 associates and operates 100 offices in the U.S. and Canada. Chartrand was the pivotal force behind quadrupling the company’s geographic coverage, transforming Acosta into the first national full-service sales and marketing company in the U.S. and Canada. Mr. Chartrand also has a passion for educating the children of Duval County and the State of Florida. In June of 2009 Gary and his wife Nancy made a pledge gift of $1 million to KIPP schools of Jacksonville. Because of his passion for education coupled with his business experience and leadership, Governor Rick Scott appointed Mr. Chartrand to the State Board of Education in 2011. He served as Chair of the State Board of Education in 2014 and 2015. Gary currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation, The Jacksonville Public Education Fund, City Year, and KIPP schools of Jacksonville, Florida. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
