This week, as part of our Strong Schools campaign, we asked readers to share photographs of your children's trip to school with the hashtag #SchoolCommute. The goal was to highlight the importance of locating schools in the neighborhoods they serve, safely accessible for children to walk or bike to; not on a stroad out on the edge of town. 

Here is a selection of some of the best submissions we received:

The good...

...and the not so good

Thanks to everyone who participated and please keep sharing those #SchoolCommute stories on social media to continue the conversation on transportation and land use around our schools.
