Funding for education: Lamontagne would reduce the amount of money the state needs to raise for local education by encouraging a constitutional amendment reversing the Supreme Court’s Claremont decisions that ruled the state must provide funding to ensure an adequate education for every child. He would also restructure the educational delivery system by eliminating school administrative units, which he believes are highly bureaucratic and expensive. He would transfer the responsibility of superintendents to each school principal in a “site-based management” system, which he said woud save money.

Primary role of governor: “The role of the governor is like that of a small town mayor. It’s about management and acting as (the state’s) ambassador and promoting New Hampshire.”
