Luiz Garcia views on Education & Economic Opportunity
"Young people are vital to the future success of Allentown. This City needs to retain our best and brightest to fulfill the jobs of tomorrow and build the businesses of the future.
Right now, we face an enormous challenge. Approximately one in three students in the Allentown School District does not graduate high school. The Students in the District lag behind the state averages in many major academic metrics.
I believe that ALL students can learn and ALL can achieve.
We have had mismanagement with respect to leadership and financial transactions in the School District in the past, and with the hiring of a new superintendent in January, I am hopeful that the Allentown School District is starting to move in the right direction.
The Mayor’s Office will engage with the School District leadership to make sure that the students are being put in a position to succeed in life. Without them, Allentown cannot move forward. We need our students to graduate, and work and open businesses in our City. The Mayor’s Office will also encourage the private sector and nonprofit organizations to engage with the School District to offer programming that benefits our future. " - Luiz Garcia, Allentown Republican Mayoral Candidate.
