Rep. Dan Maffei Hosts Discussion on Education

Christian Bersani, WAER News

With the upcoming school year quickly approaching, Representative Dan Maffei returned to his alma mater of Nottingham High School Monday to hold a roundtable meeting on how to improve pre K-12 education in Central New York.

Maffei encouraged educators, parents, and advocates from across the region to voice their opinions.  He believes education is the backbone of a strong economy and everyone, including the federal government, needs to step up when it comes to educating children.  The meeting was a continuation of the listening sessions Maffei has been having with his district’s business and community leaders.
