Letter: A vote to invest in ourselves

More than any other reason, our family chose to relocate to Newton because of the quality of its public schools. Stretching our budget to buy a house here was worth it, we felt, because of the education our three girls will enjoy.

Now as a homeowner, I see an additional benefit from Newton’s commitment to its schools: our new home will likely hold and increase its value. The city’s public education system made our house attractive to buy, and it will in the future should we ever have to relocate again.
