RYE - Today, Scott Brown kicked-off the "Making Higher Education Work" tour at Lago's Ice Cream to meet with students and college graduates and discuss his higher education policy. Brown's plan aims to create better job opportunities for young people and reduce the cost of a college education through a combination of proposals.
"As a parent, I want to make sure that my daughters, and all young-people, have the opportunity to find good-paying jobs and jumpstart their careers," said Brown. "My plan contains commonsense proposals to help New Hampshire families. I appreciate the opportunity to meet with these bright students at Lago's and applaud their hardwork to save money for their futures."
Yesterday, Brown released a white paper detailing his higher education policy plan, outlining a host of proposals set to make tuition more affordable, improve the federal financial aid system and expand opportunities for vocational education. As a Senator, Brown sponsored legislation to promote education and job opportunities in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
"Scott Brown is listening to young people and putting forth a variety of ideas to help us enter the workforce and find good-paying jobs," said Jillian Aslin, a Hampton resident and UNH student. "He understands what we are going through and I appreciate him meeting with us to discuss a real policy plan that could actually work."
The "Making Higher Education Work" tour will continue in the coming days, as Brown meets with recent graduates, students and young people across the state to listen to their concerns and discuss more ways to improve their opportunities and boost New Hampshire's economy.
