Schools in the 21st century must adapt to the changing world in which we live.  Reality dictates that local is better than distant and that those in the local community often know what is needed most and how best to provide for those needs.  That is why I support the Schools and Community First initiative because I believe that not only should more health services be offered at our neighborhood schools, but that we should be working towards becoming a true community, where schools offer a full range of wrap-around services for our students and their families.  The benefits in reduced traffic alone should spur us forward.
