The Dismal Record of Vouchers Leaves Communities and Students Behind

The Senate began hearings on their version of a massive expansion of vouchers in New Hampshire. SB 130 establishes an “education freedom account” – better known as vouchers. Earlier this year, the House version, HB20, met with overwhelming opposition and was tabled. NEA-New Hampshire President Megan Tuttle offered her testimony in opposition to SB130 today. A copy of that testimony is included below.

We urge the legislature to refocus its efforts now to supporting our students, educators, and schools through the remainder of the pandemic with the resources they need to complete the school year safely and successfully.
