Strafford Dems Presentation- School Funding & Property Tax 101- Tuesday, March 3rd, 7PM

The Strafford Town Democratic Committee will host a presentation by Attorney Andru Volinsky on the topic of "School Funding & Property Taxes in New Hampshire" on Tuesday, March 3, at 7:00 p.m. at the Hill Library (1151 Parker Mountain Road) in Strafford, NH.

 Mr. Volinsky was the lead attorney in the landmark Claremont school funding case. He is talking to people throughout the state with the goal of informing New Hampshire citizens about the current school funding system and the inequities it imposes on students, property taxpayers, and the economies of many local communities.

 "New Hampshire's reliance on local property taxes to fund education has had a big impact in towns like Strafford and our neighboring communities," said Bob Perry, Chair of the Strafford Town Democrats. "Mr. Volinsky's presentation is an important chance to hear from a longtime veteran of the fight to make education funding more fair."

 Under New Hampshire’s Constitution, the State is responsible for ensuring that every K-12 child in our state has the opportunity for an adequate education, and the tax rates for funding this public education must be equal. The public is invited to come learn about the structure of school funding and its disparate impact in different local school districts.
