Last Night I attended the public hearing on Chapter 70 School Funding. We heard common themes from across the district about the State's broken funding process. All school systems are having the same challenges. Let’s hope the commission will use the testimonies they heard last night to reinvent how we fund schools in Massachusetts.
Newburyport was well represented at meeting, with State Senator Kathleen O'Connor Ives, State Rep Elect James Kelcourse, Mayor Donna Holaday, School Committee members: Bruce Menin, Nick De Cantor, City Council Members: Robert Cronin, Ed Cameron, Meghan Carmody Kinsey, Ari Herzog, Jared Eigerman, Charlie Tontar and myself in attendance.
