Forced school consolidation is a real distinct possibility now that Governor Lamont has included the plan in his recent budget proposal. Whether you support the idea or not, I would like to encourage you to have your voices heard.

On Friday, March 1st at 1:00 in Room 2E of the Legislative Office Building, the Education Committee will be holding a public hearing to discuss school regionalization among a list of other items.
