Only in NH: Ski patrol receive vaccines before educators

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

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.

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.

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
