Busick Discusses Education Funding

State Representative Danny Busick of Newtown approved of much of what the governor had to say in Wednesday’s State of the State Address. He supports the call to raise teacher salaries, and helping districts which haven’t been able to afford raises.

The governor also called for increased funding for higher education.

Busick also wants the state to continue paying the state’s portion for school transportation costs. He would like to see more details on what the governor wants to do for kindergarten and preschool.
