North Country State Senator Jeff Woodburn and NH-NEA President Scott McGilivray will tour several North Country schools on Thursday, December 10, 2015.
The pair will visit some of the state’s smallest schools — including Landaff’s Blue School, one of the last remaining one-room schools, and the Errol Consolidated School, one of the state’s smallest 1-8th grade schools with only 18-students. They will also tour the Lisbon School, Gorham’s Edward Fenn School, the Lancaster North Country Charter School and will meet with Colebrook area teachers.
McGilvray, a Manchester educator, leads the state’s largest teachers union, NEA-New Hampshire. Woodburn is a former teacher having taught at the Whitefield School and White Mountains Regional High School.
“We’re committed to fighting for opportunity for all students regardless of their zip code,” said McGilvray. “Great schools, no matter their size, give students an amazing education, they foster a desire to learn through curiosity, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills. We need to be sure that they all have the resources they need to continue to inspire our children’s lifelong love of learning.”
