We are a mixed-race family considering moving back to PA next year. Looking at the Pottsville or Tamaqua areas, but open to suggestions for a more suitable area. Main concerns are schools, employment, and facilities/accessiblity for disabled elderly. Any advice please?

I live in Lavelle which is a small village connected to Ashland which is around 12 miles away from Pottsville.
Pottsville is on a revitalization trend but because of the overall depressed economic conditions surrounding Pottsville it is struggling along with the rest of Schuylkill County.
I commute to Harrisburg daily for work which at 53 miles each way is a bit of a drive but not too bad.
Being a mixed couple might or might not pose a concern.
White and Hispanic would probably be accepted due to the large volume of Puerto Rican people in the general area but Black and white might raise the ire of some of the locals.
The overall black population is extremely low.
I hope this helps. :O)
