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.

    NH born and raised. My father is a professor at PSU and I am currently spending my third year abroad teaching in SE Asia. Eduction should, and could be, one of our greatest priorities in the Granite State.

    As someone who attended public school from first grade until high school graduation, I have watched the creativity and ideas of teachers and students in public schools be stifled by budget constraints. We had to fight to keep certain clubs, certain languages, even teachers who as students we felt were integral to the school, but to administration were just another expense they couldn’t swing. This changes the tone of a school, knowing that something or someone that has made a huge difference in your life is considered non-essential makes you as a student feel non-essential. Students are what make the school, and the ways in which they feel like an important part of the school community are being slashed by unfair budgets put on public schools.
