NEA-NH to DeVos: We will fight every effort to open unsafe schools

July 9, 2020 – CONCORD, NH – No one wants to see our children back in schools more than us. No one. But the same instinct that moves a teacher to go to any length to protect their class, is also telling us that rushing our children back into classrooms, hallways and buses until we know it is safe, is clearly not the best thing to do. So, we stand up and we speak up for our kids. “We will not be bullied by the President of the United States

Trump, DeVos Ignore Educators on What it Will Take to Reopen Schools Safely

Administration only offers radical agenda of voucher schemes to privatize public education WASHINGTON – July 07, 2020 -President Donald Trump today held a roundtable discussion on reopening school buildings. The following statement can be attributed to Lily Eskelsen García, a sixth-grade teacher who serves as president of the 3-million member National Education Association: “Educators want nothing more than to be back in classrooms and on college campuses with our students, but we must do it in a way that keeps students, educators and communities safe. The reality is no one should listen to Donald

NEA-NH: Schools Are Not Designed For Social Distancing

Frank Edelblut, New Hampshire’s Education Commissioner, selected school administrators and school boards representatives for his official Task Force. NEA-NH, and the 17,000 professional educators we represent, was not invited. “We were instead offered a place on a workgroup, meaning the voices of those in the classrooms, hallways, buses, cafeterias and offices – the frontline for any return to school – were not given a chance to vote on the final recommendations going to the Governor,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. Since the Commissioner chose to ignore them, NEA-NH surveyed our members to be sure their voices were heard. We asked our members about important reopening criteria including safety measures, how they will reach students when the school year begins, and on the Task Force’s draft recommendation to create hybrid learning environments

NEA-NH: Current STRRT Proposals Do Not Go Far Enough To Protect Students and Educators

June 23, 2020 – CONCORD, NH -The STRRT Task Force reviewed half of their preliminary draft recommendations and sub-actions for reopening New Hampshire’s public schools today during an online meeting where members worked to fine tune the recommendations prior to submitting them to the Governor on June 30. “We are concerned that these recommendations do not go far enough to protect the health of our students and staff, and that loosening these guidelines even further seemed acceptable to the Commissioner and some members of the Task Force,” said Megan Tuttle, President of NEA-New Hampshire. “We watched in disbelief as the slide containing the recommendation for public health protocols listed ‘consider CDC guidance’ as the official recommendation.” Face coverings, PPE, and social distancing are precautions that have proven to be effective

NEA-NH Statement on the Safe Re-Opening of Our Public Schools

CONCORD, NH – June 19, 2020 – NEA-New Hampshire released their statement on the safe re-opening of our public schools today. Something important happens in our schools and classrooms that remote learning can never replace. While remote learning is a necessary response to a national emergency, it can never replace the productive learning environment of our schools and classrooms; it does not provide equal opportunities for an adequate education; and it is clearly unsustainable for the majority of New Hampshire’s parents. Remote learning does not provide the important socialization skill building found in our public schools; the one institution that routinely brings together children from different backgrounds and circumstances for a major part of their day. NEA-NH is looking forward to the day when we can safely re-open our schools.
