NEA endorses Democrat Hassan for NH governor
';Maggie shares our belief that good public schools are the foundation for strong communities and a vibrant economy and that for our students and schools to thrive, we all need to be held accountable — teachers, parents, students and elected officials. She knows that continuing to slash school funding risks losing an entire generation of students who won';t get a second chance,'; said Scott McGilvray, president of National Education Association New Hampshire, which represents more than 17,000 teachers statewide.
';I am thrilled to have earned the support of more than 17,000 of New Hampshire';s teachers and their families. As a leader in the state Senate, I fought to make sure all of our children have the chance to go to great schools that prepare them to succeed. As Governor, I will continue to put education first and stand up to anyone who wants to cut education,'; said Hassan, a former state senator from Exeter.
