Schools can play an important role in our towns—educating young people and serving as an anchor and community space for the surrounding neighborhoods. But in order to be successful and strong, schools must be located in the neighborhoods they serve, not on a stroad out on the edge of town. Schools should be safely accessible for children to walk or bike to. 

If we want to make our towns successful for future generations, we must build family-friendly neighborhoods that are affordable, enjoyable and productive for everyone who lives in them.  #StrongSchools
