Washington State University President Elson Floyd is the fourth guest in our occasional “Education Conversations” video series.
Editorial writer Lynne K. Varner asked Dr. Floyd to respond to three questions asked of every previous interviewee:
What does education mean to you?
What does an ideal education system look like?
What’s one reform Washington needs now?
Dr. Floyd talked about being raised in the south as the oldest of four children. His parents never made it past middle school, so he knows firsthand the kind of doors than can be opened for students who have the opportunity to afford and pursue a higher education.
