Manchester, NH– Jim Coburn reacted today to the New Hampshire Supreme Courts hearing of arguments regarding the legality of the current school funding plan.  “I am committed to solving the education funding problem so we can focus on achieving a higher standard in our schools so our children will receive a worldclass education which will prepare them for whatever they decide to do, whether that is college, trade school, or directly into the workforce.  A top quality education will keep New Hampshire’s economy growing and will not be possible without a solution to the education funding crisis.  A solution we have yet to see from our current Governor,” Coburn said today.
