Governor Maggie Hassan is in Chicago for the next two days, where she will meet with other state leaders to discuss education.
Hassan is attending the 2013 Governors Education Symposium, which takes place Monday and Tuesday.
The forum is being held at Chicago’s Millennium Park and is sponsored by the James B. Hunt Institute for Educational Leadership and Policy.
Hassan's office says the National Governors Association is covering the cost of the trip.
Hassan will be back in the state Wednesday, when she is scheduled to deliver the keynote address for the National Education for Women Leadership New England program at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
