Education

We all agree that improving our public education system is a top priority. And we all know that even in tough times, we must fund our schools to the level they deserve. We agree on the principles – so when are we going to put our ideas into real action?

We agree that investing in our local schools is the best way to ensure that our children receive the education they need to prepare them for a successful future in a 21st century economy and rapidly changing job market.

Will San Francisco succeed in the 21st century with an educated and well-trained workforce? Or will the children of this city fall behind in achievement and opportunity?
