Business leaders express support for Patrick’s education plan

A group of 87 business leaders have come out in support of Governor Deval Patrick’s early education plan, and the new revenue tied to it, which they say is a necessary investment to ensure there is a well-educated workforce.

The announcement was made in a letter Tuesday, as the governor prepared to meet with business leaders and economists Wednesday to discuss the state’s economy and his fiscal 2014 budget. Earlier this month, a group of 57 economists wrote a letter supporting Patrick’s budget, which would fund new transportation and education programs partly by raising the income tax and rewriting portions of the corporate tax code.
