NEA-NH Response to State Board of Education Rules Governing Temporary Transition to Remote Learning During Community-Wide COVID Outbreak

“Today, we find ourselves in the middle of what Governor Sununu said was not even the highest surge New Hampshire will see from Omicron. School districts across the state are struggling with staffing shortages as the number of cases climbs higher than ever. While educators, parents and health care professionals are focused on keeping our children and families healthy and safe, Commissioner Edelblut and the State Board of Education are focused on penalizing school districts for making the difficult decision to temporarily switch to remote instruction during a community-wide outbreak,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “New Hampshire educators and parents are not eager to revert to a remote instructional model. They overwhelmingly agree that distance education should be used sparingly in the name of health and safety for their

NEA-New Hampshire Welcomes Today’s Vote to Table HB 607

“Today’s vote to table HB 607 is a bi-partisan acknowledgement of the reality that the majority of Granite Staters believe we should be investing in our public schools, not defunding them to pay private, religious, and home school expenses,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President.   If passed, HB 607 will drive MASSIVE property tax increases to pay private school tuition. The continued push by certain politicians to defund public schools with bills like HB 607 hurts our students’ chances to succeed now, and later in life. “The recently enacted voucher expansion was underestimated by 5000% and has resulted in millions of dollars in new spending. Today’s vote is a chance to pump the brakes before we pass that kind of bill to the local level as well,” said Tuttle. “Teachers

NEA-NH Supports AFT’s Legal Action to Ensure Every Child Has Access to a Quality Public Education

CONCORD, NH – December 13, 2021 – New Hampshire educators want to provide every child an accurate and quality education that imparts honesty about who we are and integrity in how we treat others. Certain politicians want to censor the truth of our history and ban us from learning from the mistakes of our past. “We agree with our colleagues at AFT that the divisive concepts law is flawed, and we support their efforts to advocate for students in court,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. From the time the bill was introduced until Governor Sununu signed it into law, NEA-NH vigorously opposed this measure. “Our children deserve the freedom to develop the knowledge and skills they need to reckon with our past, shape a better future, and pursue their
