Letter: Feltes strong on education
I’m supporting Dan Feltes for state Senate because his education platform stands out.
My husband and I are both educators, and our two children attend the local elementary schools.
Here in Hopkinton, we’ll have full-day kindergarten for all children starting this month. Dan wants to bring that great start to every child in New Hampshire – and to make sure the opportunities for learning continue every step of the way from there.
His cradle-to-career approach to education starts with ensuring that every family who needs it can afford quality child care and includes 21st-century strategies like promoting STEM training and creating an innovative incubator program for budding entrepreneurs.
Employers want to locate in states that produce career-ready high school and college graduates. Investing in education from pre-kindergarten through postsecondary means investing in the long-term health of our economy.
The Sept. 9 primary will be close. I’ll be casting my vote for Dan Feltes.
