Sen. Adam Hinds Advocates for Rural School District Funding Increase

Late last month, the Massachusetts State Senate added additional money qualifying rural school districts in its version of the budget. The move follows a January report from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education which found rural districts face unique challenges that get in the way of serving students. State Senator Adam Hinds, who pushed for the rural school district funding increase to meet those challenges, joins Carrie Saldo in studio to discuss how new funding will address educational issues in rural areas of the state.
