After Committee Adopts HB1431, NEA-NH Hopeful On News of Promised Veto

HB 1431 was adopted with amendments by the Committee of Conference today. Even after the adoption of amendments, HB1431 still requires mandatory, immediate disclosure to parents about changes in gender identity and expression at school – it interferes in parent-child relationships, causes harm to vulnerable LGBTQ+ and other students, and undermines school efforts to create affirming, inclusive learning environments. “Parents and teachers in New Hampshire have been working together for a long time to ensure our schools consistently provide what’s best for our children and their education,” said Megan Tuttle,

As Teacher Appreciation Week Comes to a Close…

Teacher Appreciation Week 2022 comes to a close today.

Instead of building upon the on-going parent-teacher relationship, HB 1431 takes the opposite approach. Its broad language around so-called rights and notice, particularly on the heels of the banned concepts law, coupled with the threat of litigation will only provoke a greater chill in our schools. Rather than working to encourage educators to make their schools and classrooms welcoming, safe places for all students, HB 1431 installs a system based on vague rules and intimidation. “Today’s vote by the state senate to
