Why Public Schools?

The world of information is dense and complex. People, in general, have trouble holding on to essential facts and information that don't impact their lives in explicit ways.

I believe that for many the value of public schools falls into this category. For those of us that believe in public schools, we have to make the message clear. It's integral that people understand the connection between strong, high quality public schools and strong communities, states, and nations.

As you translate this message to others, what are your best facts, vignettes, and explanations. To truly bolster public school support, funding, and progression, the message needs to be strong, clear, and convincing.

I welcome your responses to this need. Please add the most convincing information to the comments space below. For me, the quote at the top of the page by Lehmann and Chase is convincing.
