Building community schools systems
from Center for American Progress
If the United States is ever to fulfill its promise of full equality for all citizens, its public schools need to work for all children. In the information age economy, the benefits of postsecondary educational attainment on lifetime earnings are higher than ever before. However, family poverty status remains the best indicator of educational attainment, and as of 2013, the majority of public school students live in or near poverty. U.S. public schools must improve how they serve low-income students and communities.
