"I believe our goal should be to ensure all children in New Hampshire have the opportunity to have a quality education no matter where they live. To achieve that goal, we need a constitutional amendment that affirms the state's responsibility for education while providing more flexibility to effectively target aid to the communities and the children who need it the most .

"I support the amendment passed by the Senate today because it accomplishes those goals. I want to thank the senators for their hard work and I look forward to talking with lawmakers further about this amendment."
