Strong schools benefit children and their families by providing programs and courses that meet the needs of all students, whether they be academic or technical. Teachers profit when they begin their careers properly educated and when there is continued support in the important work they do. Employers reap in both dollars and time saved when applicants appear ready to work. And our society benefits overall when its members feel strong and successful.
Today, reaching these goals is a real probability.
