Public education impacts everyone. It results in higher incomes, better jobs, rising property values and a healthy economy. Today’s students are your doctors, nurses, engineers, and technicians of tomorrow. Our parents, grandparents, and neighbors paid for education for each of us. Investing in the next generation is a time honored American value. Specifically, new and improved school buildings will:
· Make neighborhoods more desirable for current and future residents,
· Have a positive impact on property values,
· Send a positive message to future businesses that Jacksonville values education (education and workforce preparation are among the most important variables in attracting new jobs), and provide neighborhoods with better shelters during hurricanes and other emergencies.
