Chris Coleman on Education
Close opportunity gap between "haves" & "have-nots"
Mayor Chris Coleman holds education as a top priority for his administration. Mayor Coleman leads with a vision for how children should be prepared for school and for life by working in collaboration with the community to leverage city and
community resources to put all of our children on the road to success. The Coleman administration hopes to close the opportunity gap between the "haves" and "have-nots" through quality-driven,
accessible learning opportunities for children, youth and families.
The years before a child enters school are critical to the success of that child, and to the community in which she lives.
Students spend 20 percent of their waking moments in school. The other time can be spent anywhere doing anything--like in quality programs at safe neighborhood places with engaging staff.
