Finally Putting Schools First

If you want to lower crime, you improve the schools. If you want to reduce economic inequality, or increase opportunity, or attract millennials, or attract businesses to bring in more jobs, or do anything else the mayor said he wanted to do, it all starts with the schools.

As far as facilities go, the School Board outlined a plan for Schools called the Capital Improvement Plan, and that will help guide the development of new facilities. The new mayor will have to coordinate closely with City Council and the School Board. With the right people in place, like Levar or any of the candidates not tied to the current administration, and people on City Council and the School Board with knowledge about educational issues, the schools can improve quickly.
