NEA-NH Responds to School Funding Related Rulings

CONCORD, NH – Today, the State of New Hampshire Superior Court issued decisions on the education adequacy aid and the SWEPT tax cases.

Megan Tuttle, president of NEA-New Hampshire, provided this statement in response:
“Today’s rulings confirm what we have known all along – the state of New Hampshire has failed to adequately fund public education, instead downshifting costs to local communities.

While we are encouraged by this recognition of the current inadequate funding scheme, we know this is just one more step in the long process of truly adequately funding public education in our state to ensure all students have the opportunity to succeed.”
