Why we should preserve historic schools

Have you ever wondered why it is important to preserve historic schools? Or more importantly why the schools were sited within a community center?  Historic schools are typically sited in centers of town where most students traditionally walked, or rode bicycles to school. Shouldn't county education boards site more schools where students can take advantage of accessability? If you are interested in learning more about Georgia's historic schools please visit the Georgia Historic Preservation Division link here For more information about national success with community centered schools please visit the National Trust for Historic Preservation links at
