We all know that our community faces serious challenges. The difficult economic climate has been particularly hard on our residents, and we have all felt its effect. Many home values have declined, and our area has had difficulty attracting quality jobs. In our schools, the incredible efforts of our teachers have kept students performing at a high level, but maintaining this level of performance is increasingly difficult, given our schools’ inadequate facilities and potentially unstable resources.
We can’t just wait for things to get better. Turning around our community is up to us, and it starts with our schools. Improving our schools and the quality of education we offer means a better future for our kids, but it also means jobs and economic development for everyone in our community.
