com 571-212-9450 KRYSTAL BALL WINS EDUCATION REFORMER OF THE MONTH Krystal Ball is National DFER Ed Reformer of the Month; Praises Education Leaders PA Cyber, K12, Inc. and New Orleans Public Schools. Fredericksburg, VA – October 14, 2010 – Today Krystal Ball, reform-minded Congressional candidate for Virginia’s 1st District, released the following statement: "I am honored to have been selected by Democrats for Education Reform to be their Ed Reformer of the Month. DFER ( aims to return the Democratic Party to its rightful place as a champion of children, first and foremost, in America's public education systems. They support leaders in our party who have the courage to challenge a failing status quo and who believe that the severity of our nation's educational crisis demands that we tackle this problem using every possible tool at our disposal." Ball Continued, "I am proud of the work that I have done in education and look forward to being an outspoken voice for education reform if I have the honor of serving as Congresswoman of the 1st District of Virginia. I am especially proud of the work that my company has done with K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN) on a next generation Spanish and French learning software in partnership with Middlebury College. I also get inspiration from Dr. Nick Trombetta at PA Cyber, who has developed the model for the nation of how small rural towns can become national centers of educational excellence. I believe innovations like these, and the renewal in New Orleans schools since Katrina are the sorts of solutions that the Federal government can help to scale." A lifelong Virginian who was raised in King George County, Krystal Ball is a graduate of the University of Virginia. She is a small business owner and a Certified Public Accountant.
