The public education system is arguably the most important government service offered for children. In order for future generations to successfully help America achieve its ideals of equal opportunity, all citizens must be adequately educated.
Since children and teachers spend a great deal of time at school, it is vital that they have beautiful environments in which to learn, teach, work, and play. Beauty inspires us all to live more creative and happy lives. And, when children and adults are happier, the learning environment becomes more productive and enjoyable.
A child’s standard for quality of life is dictated by their day-to-day surroundings. By giving students an environment that is conducive to their health and happiness, they will gain the drive and passion to model that environment for the rest of their lives. It is beneficial to teach children that a beautiful community is the norm, rather than an exception.
