PUBLIC SCHOOLS BENEFIT EVERYONE
RootEd believes all students benefit by having a public school educational experience, in turn creating a strengthened and flourishing community. No school is perfect, but the beauty of public schooling is going to school with neighbors. Not only are students receiving a well rounded education but they are also building stronger communities and neighborhoods. Students will be exposed to both racial and socio-economical diversity. By being exposed to such diversity, students can feel more empowered to ask questions about things they would have never thought to ask. There is a benefit to going to school with people who are different, making students better citizens someday.
RootEd’s aim is simple: spreading positive messages on public school experiences from both parents and students, highlighting the important work done at the schools, replacing misconceptions with optimistic information, support any pro-public school candidates and legislators in the local and state government, and ensuring that parents have the truth about public school funding. RootEd is all about partnering with those who encourage a student’s public school education and wish to see their successes.
