NEA-NH Statement on Executive Council Board of Education Vote

The State Board of Education is responsible for providing leadership and oversight to our education system. This requires experience in education, whether that be prior service on a school board, in  school administration or as an educator in a classroom; a demonstrated commitment and advocacy around advancing educational policies and outcomes; or any other activity that indicates the nominee has the experience and expertise to best serve our state’s children, the vast majority of whom attend public schools.

Commissioner Edelblut Just Does Not Get It.

There are so many important issues that need addressing in our schools right now, but our Commissioner keeps fighting the “Learn Everywhere” battle over and over and over. “Racial inequalities, food insecurity, and the health and safety of our students and staff during any reopening of schools should be his focus right now,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President.  “Instead, he continues to push his program to bully school districts into accepting graduation credits from unqualified sources.”  At a time when more than 2 million Americans have contracted COVID-19 and more than 114,000 have died from the disease, instead of trying to speed the release of relief funds sent to New Hampshire public schools, his priority is how to funnel that funding to private school students.  At no point during his

We know as a member of the Executive Council, Leah will be a fierce advocate for our public school students, staff and their families.”  The Executive Council provides a critical check on the governor, assessing state contracts, and vetting candidates for important positions such as agency heads, state board positions and judgeships; all of which have a tremendous impact on education and working families in New Hampshire.
