NORWICH, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Republican Gov. Phil Scott is holding a daylong summit to discuss how to reduce education costs and provide better opportunities for students.
In opening remarks at Norwich University on Monday, Scott said while he understands the frustration and fatigue with education reform, he says the state has an urgent need to transform its education system.
He says as an aging state, Vermont on average has more than 1,000 fewer students every year while education costs have grown faster than health care costs over the last ten years. He says the rising costs are a long term threat to the state’s economy and education.
The summit includes panel discussions, as well as participants gathering in small groups to come up with ideas.
