It is time to start seeing education as the economic driver of not only the Mt. Washington Valley and state of New Hampshire, but as the country as a whole. This class session focuses on budgeting, the Common Core Standards and how they effect NH’s schools, Special Education, and analyzing the type of information and knowledge being taught to our children currently. Questions posed are: “When is it time to start letting go of antiquated information and moving forward with more relevant information to today’s changing world?” “How should towns tackle the inequity within schools on socioeconomic platform?” “How can the Mt. Washington Valley stay competitive financially with schools in cities to compensate teachers proportionally to their student debt?” and more.
Current panelist is Elaine Millen.
