NEA-NH President: State-Mandated Start Date Does Nothing To Improve Student Learning

NEA-New Hampshire President provided in-person testimony to the Governor’s Save Our Summers Study Commission this week. Governor Chris Sununu issued an executive order establishing a commission to study the impact of New Hampshire schools setting start dates before Labor Day, and to evaluate whether schools should be required to start after the holiday.  In the Executive Order, the Governor wrote “starting school after Labor Day lengthens the summer tourism season, increases tourism expenditures and increases tourism and recreation-related state and local government revenues.” The following is the testimony given by NEA-NH President Megan Tuttle: Members of the Save Our Summers Study Commission, Good morning.

Concealed Weapons in our Schools. Does That Sound Like a Good Idea to You?

Governor Sununu said in last night’s debate that an adult should be able to carry a concealed weapon into our schools. That’s wrong, and his policies make our schools less safe for our children and their educators.   We need to dramatically expand our focus on mental health. Proper diagnosis can and often starts in our schools, yet there is a huge shortage of school counselors, school social workers and school psychologists in public education. We need more school-based health centers that diagnose and treat mental health disorders. It’s also important that access to mental health services is are a mandatory part of all healthcare coverage. Our school facilities must be equipped with an updated structural and technological support foundation to help protect students and educators from danger. We must
