Why are Schools & Education important for a livable Newport?
The future of Newport is linked to the health of our education system. Newport’s economy depends upon an educated, trained workforce, well-prepared to meet the needs of today as well as able to continue to ‘grow’ opportunities for future business development. For Newport to grow and prosper, we need to attract young families and companies and to do so we need to have a well-respected public education system. Education is an investment in life that cannot be lost or taken away. Our school system must provide our young Newporters with the educational opportunities, training options and life skills to meet the demands of an increasingly complex and global economy.
