Let’s be clear.
The 17,000 members of NEA-NH and their families think educators should get vaccines before ski patrol members. The Governor does not.
We think masks help keep students and staff stay safe and should be mandated for all in-person learning. The Governor does not.
We want the health and safety of students and staff to be priority one – that’s why our charitable foundation is distributing 4,000 child size masks to schools that haven’t received them from the Governor.
We’re upset because we believe front line educators need to be vaccinated before out-of-state ski patrol members. And so does every other state in the union. The Governor is upset because we called him on it.
Establishing policy over social media is not our choice, Governor – it’s yours. We remain committed to working together when you are.
