Defend Public Education in New Hampshire

Stand up for New Hampshire’s public schools that are increasingly under attack!

This legislative session New Hampshire’s public schools were threatened by SB-193, which was called the most dangerous school voucher bill in the nation.  The bill would have siphoned millions of taxpayer dollars from local school districts and given to parents to pay for private and religious schools or to homeschool. A sustained, public outcry defeated this bill and protected public schools ... for now. We know the opponents of strong public schools will be back!

Volunteer with Rights & Democracy to protect and improve public education during the current midterm election season.

SIGN ON IN SUPPORT!

We—parents, taxpayers, and supporters of public education—urge state legislators and Gov. Chris Sununu to uphold these basic principles:

✓ Every child, regardless of their income level, zip code, race, or ability deserves a quality education, as a right not a privilege.

New Hampshire should invest in our public schools to build strong communities and our future leaders.

We will protect our public schools from being dismantled at the federal and state levels and work to provide all students with a quality public education.

    I myself have had a lifetime career in public education. My own two children have special needs, and we had to struggle to obtain even inadequate services for them from an underfunded education system.


    We are a relatively wealthy state. We are in 5th place nationally in terms of per capita personal income, and 9th in taxable resources. Yet the State’s contribution to public education remains among the lowest in the country. This is shameful!

    Schools need to be able to hire and support their support staff so all children can access their education.

    Limited funding forces schools to restrict resources for only the neediest cases, while the majority of students just coast through. ALL students should be encouraged to achieve their potential. ALL students should have access to those resources. But that can only happen when NH views its children as its future, and provides the funding they deserve.
