Learn Everywhere Rules Sent Back to DOE after Committee’s Preliminary Objection Vote

NEA-New Hampshire is pleased with today’s Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) vote to preliminarily oppose the so called Learn Everywhere rules, sending them back to the Department of Education to address a number of very specific objections and the committee’s concerns for special education students. “We believed from the very beginning that the process used to develop ‘Learn Everywhere’ was deeply flawed due to the lack of input sought, or incorporated from, New Hampshire’s educators,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “Some of the conflicts outlined in JLCAR’s

State Board Votes to Devalue NH Diplomas

“The double-standard voted into place today is insulting to education professionals across New Hampshire.” Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President NEA-NH is disappointed but not surprised by the vote taken by the State Board of Education to adopt Commissioner Edleblut’s ‘Learn Everywhere’ rules. “Today, the New Hampshire State Board of Education (SBOE) voted to no longer require state certification, student teaching, adherence to the state’s code of conduct or probationary periods to teach a high school class for a semester and award graduation credit,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “They instead will now rely solely on a vendor’s application describing their ‘demonstrated qualifications’ to grant them access to students and the ability to award credit that will appear on official student transcripts even if the standards set by the local

Court: NH School Funding Unconstitutional

CONCORD, NH – June 6. 2019 – Today’s ruling confirms what NEA-NH has been saying for years: New Hampshire has failed to provide stable, equitable and truly adequate funding for our public schools for decades.  The Cheshire County Court issued the ruling on the lawsuit brought forth by Contoocook Valley (ConVal), Monadnock, Winchester, and Mascenic School Districts over the amount that the state provides in funding for NH schools, ruling that the funding formula is unconstitutional. “Our elected leaders have regularly put the interests of the wealthy and corporations ahead of the needs of our public school students and set education budgets without knowing how much it truly costs to educate kids,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President.  “Hopefully, this ruling is the first step in correcting these unconstitutional practices.”
