What do you value about public education?

Grants access to quality educational offerings that meet the needs of various students. --Leadership Alumni of Greater Baton Rouge Member

Public education offers everyone a common ground and opportunity for achievement over a lifetime. It is beyond race, beyond gender, beyond any qualifier. It is, simply put, the one facet that separates the U.S. from all other countries in this world—we attempt to education everyone! --Sue Catchings, Health Care Centers in Schools

Public education reflects the values of a community. It sends a message to prospective industry, business, and residents about the way this city values its citizens. This perspective is one that follows the core principals of any public school which is educating the youth of our community. --Beyond Bricks EBR Launch Attendee
