Teachers, attorneys, business leaders launch education group

The Associated Press

CONCORD — A non-partisan group of political, business and education leaders hope to have a say in guiding the state's education policy through a new non-profit.

Reaching Higher New Hampshire is a newly formed group co-chaired by attorneys Tom Rath, a former Republican attorney general, and Alan Reische, an active Democrat. The group's members say they hope to be a resource for lawmakers and focus on policy-heavy discussions about the future of public education in the state.

The group has yet to back specific policy proposals, but is calling for more access to pre-kindergarten and early childhood education programs as well as a stronger focus on preparing students for available jobs in the science, technology, engineering and math fields.

The group's board includes teachers, school board members, political leaders and business people
