Educating for the Future in the Next Great American City


Traditional education has much to offer, and we recognize the critical contribution of our city's educators. We also recognize that education must adapt to economic and societal changes in order to prepare the students of today to contibute and win in the economy of tomorrow.

We support cooperation between public and private entities to provide a variety of expanded educational opportunities for the people of our city. In doing so, we will be able both to prepare them for success, and to provide an attractive workforce for the kinds of companies who have the potential to contribute greatly to our growth as a Great American City.
