Campion of Bennington to lead Senate Education Committee - Manchester Journal

The junior senator from Bennington County will lead the Senate Education Committee - one of a few Senate committee leadership changes.

Campion is the director of public policy at the Elizabeth Coleman Center for the Advancement of Public Action at Bennington College.

In laying out his priorities, Campion said the evidence on the importance of early education is clear. “Investing early in our children is in our state’s short and long-term interests,” he said. From economic development to educational outcomes, each dollar invested is returned in multiples.”

Campion said the COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear how important strong schools are to communities. And Wednesday’s storming of the U.S. Capitol shows “educational institutions are really fundamental to furthering and strengthening our democracy.”
