Governor: Please Name the School NEA-NH Has Stopped From Re-opening

During his press conference today, Governor Sununu stated teacher unions are blocking the reopening of school. So we’re asking Governor: please name the school NEA-NH has stopped from re-opening. If you want our schools to reopen, why are out-of-state ski patrol members getting vaccines before classroom teachers? NH Educators if you’re outraged you have to wait until downhill skiing is safe before your classroom is made safe, call the Governor and let him know: 603-271-2121

NEA-NH President Calls on Sununu to Explain Why Ski Patrol is Receiving COVID Vaccine Before Educators

NEA-NH President Says Sununu Should Follow Other States and Prioritize Vaccinating Educators in Phase 1 Concord, N.H. — Today, NEA-NH is calling on Governor Chris Sununu to explain why ski patrol staff are being prioritized for the Phase 1a allocation of the COVID vaccine ahead of New Hampshire educators. According to the NH Region Ski Patrol, ski patrol staff can receive the COVID vaccine during Phase 1a, ahead of educators who are slated to receive the vaccine in Phase 2, or by March. However, according to section 153-A of Emergency Medical and Trauma Services, the definition of emergency medical care provider “shall not include lifeguards at swimming facilities or members of ski patrols, or New Hampshire fish and game department conservation officers, unless said individuals are performing invasive patient care

Commissioner Edelblut, What Kind of Example Are You Setting for Our Kids?

Governor Sununu, are you as shocked by the comments tweeted by your Education Commissioner as we are? For his first posts since the insurrection at the Capitol on Wednesday, Frank Edelblut did not choose to denounce the murder of a police officer or the violence perpetrated by the rioters incited by President Trump. Instead, he chose to denounce the decisions by private corporations to enforce their terms and conditions of use.   Let’s be very clear here: Parler was de-platformed because they refused to control incitement of violence and hatred – actions we would never let happen in our education system. But your Education Commissioner doesn’t care at all about that.  We have two questions for you Governor: What kind of example has he set for the children of our

Legislative Update – The New Legislature Taking Shape

Speaker of NH House – In the wake of the death of NH Speaker Dick Hinch, there will need to be a new election for Speaker when the House meets on January 6th. On December 18, the House Republicans held a virtual caucus and will be nominating the acting Speaker Sherm Packard for that post making him the likely next speaker. Here is what we know for committee assignments which are important to track as we work to make our voices heard on our issues: Senate Committee assignments – The state Senate has released its full committee assignments you can see here. House Committee Assignments – We expect to see full committee assignments soon, but we do know the chairs and vice-chairs of each committee. You can find the committee

NEA-NH Urges Charters Be Held to the Same Standards as all Other Taxpayer-Funded Schools

Today, the Commissioner and Legislature have agreed to cash Betsy DeVos’ check to double the number of charter schools in New Hampshire.  Her check provides for the start-up costs for these new schools, but does not pay to operate or maintain them – the taxpayers of New Hampshire will be responsible for those costs. Charter schools, by their very nature, drain funding from local public schools, which enroll over 90 percent of K-12 students. We believe since charter schools are taxpayer-funded schools, they MUST be held to the same safeguards and high standards of accountability, transparency, oversight and equity as public schools. In previous hearings, it was clearly shown that New Hampshire’s charter school laws provide for weak regulations and lax oversight.  In fact, our state’s charter school teachers are
