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

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.”

Watch for Student Loan Errors

Some loan servicers may be dropping the ball on keeping you up-to-date on how much you may owe. By Kaitlin Pitsker, Associate Editor If you’re paying off student debt, you may not be able to rely on the company that manages your loan to help you select the best repayment option—or even give you accurate information about how much you owe. A recent report by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General found that the companies the department pays to manage and collect payments on federal student loans—known as loan servicers—failed to provide borrowers with accurate information about repayment options. Some also miscalculated payment amounts for borrowers. Borrowers should keep track of the balance, payment history, loan servicer and repayment status for each loan. Before consolidating federal student

NEA-NH Files “Learn Everywhere” Right-to-Know Request

CONCORD, NH – June 4, 2019 – This morning, NEA-New Hampshire filed a Right to Know request with the Department of Education requesting all records and communications regarding the Commissioner’s “Learn Everywhere” proposal. “The fact is, these rules were written without meaningful input from public school educators, administrators and parents. Members from groups representing teachers, school boards, school administrators, school principals, and special education professionals have all spoken out in opposition to this plan,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “I cannot recall another time when all five of these groups were as unified on anything.” “Learn Everywhere completely tramples New Hampshire’s longstanding tradition of local control,” said Tuttle. “The State Board of Education has seen fit to pass rules that require our schools to be accredited, and teachers to
