Choice + Promise = Win the Future?
Shaun Donovan, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development certainly thinks so. In an editorial published in Louisville, Kentucky’s Courier-Journal, Donovan writes that:
“By transforming other distressed housing in a neighborhood — not just public housing — and tying this transformation to the Department of Education’s Promise Neighborhoods initiative, Choice Neighborhoods will ensure there is stable housing, quality learning opportunities and quality job opportunities at the center of these communities. Only then will children have access to the stable housing, strong neighborhoods and good schools we need to out-educate our competitors and win the future.”
We think he may be on to something. Do you? Let us know how you see Choice Neighborhoods and Promise Neighborhoods working together!
