Schools are vital infrastructure for smaller communities, where residents depend on their local school as a community hub.

"With continued pressure to reduce and consolidate schools, it is important to to actively support community leaders, parents and students who are trying to build new opportunities for maintaining their local school. One of the main reasons I have chosen to run in Area 2 is to support stakeholders who believe strongly in community schools." - Richard Eberhardt
