NEA-NH Government Relations Committee: Many Strong Choices for Educators This Primary

When asked by Patrick Cogan, Chair of NEA-NH’s Government Relations Committee, what a recommendation from NEA-NH would mean to his campaign, Cory Booker replied that the Presidency of the United States is the most powerful and influential position in the world, impacting the lives of Americans and countless people around the world.

Newmarket Support Staff Builds Better Wages and Benefits

My name is Pam Young and I am a paraprofessional in the Newmarket School District and President of the Newmarket Support Staff, which includes paraprofessionals and tutors.

Priorities for New Hampshire Public Education: NEA-NH’s 2020 Legislative Agenda

Students are at the center of everything we do. Our legislative objectives again this year focus on improving student achievement, education quality, and ensuring in-service and retired education professionals have the

NEA-NH Applauds Fiscal Committee Vote to Reject Charter Grant

NEA-New Hampshire applauds the vote of the fiscal committee this morning to reject the $46 million grant Education Commissioner Edelblut planned to use to double the number of charter schools in New Hampshire. “Cashing Betsy DeVos’ $46 million check obligated New Hampshire taxpayers to coming up with new long term funding for years to come, jeopardizing our neighborhood public schools,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “We support efforts to increase charter accountability and slow the diversion of resources from neighborhood public schools to charters.” “The first five years for a new charter school are the most tenuous because of the financial instability. There is no guarantee that if the number of charter schools are doubled, the doors of those schools will remain open.  Taking a gamble on the future of
