Andru Volinsky on Education



Fund schools fairly, teachers should be paid well

I believe a good education should not be an accident of geography--that we should have high expectations for every child in New Hampshire and provide the resources they need to succeed. To do that, we must fund our schools fairly. Teachers should be paid well and our schools must be safe environments free of guns.

Control college debt; provide alternatives to college

We need to look harder at post-secondary education. Colleges must be affordable and college debt must be brought under control. However, we cannot continue to ignore students who do not want a traditional college. Programs that start in high school and continue intermittently as students choose to acquire more skills are as important as formal two- and four-year college programs.

Won case that state-funded public education is a right

I don't come from a wealthy background. I am the only one in my family to attend college--which I did on scholarship and by working summers and during the school year. Strong schools must remain a path to success. My decades of work to improve schools in New Hampshire as the lead lawyer in the Claremont school funding case is an example of how I have made a difference. We convinced the New Hampshire Supreme Court that a state-funded public education is a cherished constitutional right.

Shameful that schools may lack science teachers

Because the state has never lived up to its responsibilities, sadly, the quality of a child's education remains an accident of where he or she lives. I met a fourth-grader named Aurora who wants to be a doctor. She'll struggle because Berlin doesn't have any chemistry teachers. It is shameful that in our great state we have school systems that lack science teachers and that schools have been forced to ration remedial programs and limit access to training in the trades.
