Excellent Public Schools for All
Public Education is an American value that we’ve slowly and methodically defunded over the past 50 years. As a North Hills graduate myself, I know firsthand the impact a solid public school education can have on a person’s life and ability to succeed. Upward mobility – the cornerstone of the American Dream – has over the past few decades become more myth than reality for the vast majority of children growing up in low-income communities. One important factor that continues to be correlated with a child’s ability to thrive economically is the strength and quality of public schools in the area starting in Pre-K, the most crucial developmental time in a child's life.
