Governor Deval Patrick unveils ambitious new education plan

Governor Deval Patrick today unveiled an ambitious education plan that would pump more money into improving education for everyone from the smallest children to college students.

Asked how he would pay for the plan, which he estimated would eventually cost $1 billion a year, he raised the possibility that the state’s citizens would be asked to pay higher taxes. “We gotta stop being afraid of that conversation,” he said after a news conference unveiling the education proposal at a Boston school.
