EXECUTIVE SUMMARYEducation is the key to the quality of life for individuals and families. As a society wemust make the conscious commitment to ensure that all children and youth receive a highquality education. It is incumbent that the value of an education permeates throughout allneighborhoods and strengthens a culture that values learning across this city, not only forthe youth of this city but adult learning as well.Our Mayor can make a difference in education through involvement with local schoolsby exercising leadership in multiple ways. By using his influence and authority overpublic safety, health and social service agencies, parks and recreation facilities, and a hostof other resources, he can make a positive and direct impact on the lives of children—andimprove their educational outcomes—without becoming directly involved in thegovernance of the school system.Mayor Alvin Brown is positioned to advocate for children and the need for qualityeducation in our schools and community. The Mayor will have a key role in formulatingpolicies and programs that have a direct impact on children’s lives. He has the uniqueability to foster collaboration between schools, health, and social services. Mayor Browncan promote, support and advocate for important children’s initiatives, such as: earlylearning, out of school youth programs, workforce development efforts, social services,library services, and cultural programs.With all these possibilities for mayoral involvement, the two pivotal questions for MayorBrown are:
 
What is my role as Jacksonville’s chief elected official to ensure every child hasthe opportunity for a quality educational experience?
 
What can I do to align, influence, and focus Jacksonville’s children and familysupport services to best provide that educational opportunity?
The Education and Children’s Transition Committee has developed a
Strategic EducationFramework 
to help Mayor Brown answer these questions. The contents of thisframework allow Mayor Alvin Brown to better understand the range of issuessurrounding children in the city of Jacksonville as he transitions into the role of the city’s
 Education Mayor’
. This
Strategic Education Framework 
provides a plan of action toallow the Mayor to fundamentally impact and improve the lives of children and families.1
