Why School News Network?
Public education is the cornerstone of this nation's democracy, and our schools are the hubs of communities in every city, suburb and rural town. Education ranks consistently at or near the top of Kent County research on local priorities. The appetite for education news and information grows each year, among families and the general public.
While it was once possible to keep the community informed through an annual school open house and a newsletter (plus the news they'd hear at school sporting events, concerts, meetings), that just isn't enough anymore.
And with the tremendous changes in local media and a dozen years of education budget-cutting, it's become much harder for schools to provide the information the community is interested in – the news the public needs to truly understand and evaluate their school investment.
Providing this news is the purpose of our School News Network. This site offers a window into our schools – a behind-the-scenes look at the myriad ways the investment in public education is helping the community's children grow, learn and achieve.
