Last week, former San Antonio Spurs superstar David Robinson (far right) spoke on “Teaming Up to Transform Public Education” at SXSWedu and posed for a photo with IDEA Public Schools founder and CEO Tom Torkelson (center) and staff. Photo by Tracy Young, Vice President of Public & Government Affairs at the Texas Charter Schools Association.

As discussed earlier, last year Robinson teamed up with IDEA to turn Carver Academy, the private school he and his wife, Valerie, founded in 2001, into IDEA Carver Academy and College Prep, an open enrollment public charter school on San Antonio’s East Side. Robinson continues to take an active role with IDEA Public Schools in the San Antonio area.
