Education determines how resourceful a person can be, how likely they are to have a job, how much they contribute to the economy, their level of criminal behavior, their overall happiness, and their quality of life. However, education means so much more than what a person learns between the opening and closing hours of the school day. Much of education comes from the stability to retain those lessons and information outside of school. Without the support necessary for students to absorb what they’ve learned, the quality of the education they receive is essentially worthless. To that end, I propose a series of sites around the district where students can go to do their homework, play outside, or do anything to find that safety, support, and stability necessary for them to make the most of their education. This is a needed public investment: an investment in our future.
