This Year Has to be Different

President’s Message, by Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President As the school year begins, I cannot help feeling that this year is very different.  The events of this summer have brought headlines about violence, race, justice and equality back into our daily life.  We shudder as we witness the violence, the hate that produced it, and the official response from our government that only serves to legitimize it. Our role as educators has always been important.  But this year seems different.  Our ever-connected students face the news and images of bigotry and

This Labor Day, and Every Day, Unions Fight for Real Freedoms for Working People

NEA-NH’s Postcards to the Commissioner Campaign

NEA-NH members wrote postcards to Education Commissioner Edelblut describing how they make a difference every day. Before becoming Commissioner of the Department of Education, Frank Edelblut had never set foot in a public school.  Now that he is in his new job, it is important that he understand just what being a public-school employee is all about.  Educators from across New Hampshire took the time to write a short postcard to the Commissioner describing in a sentence or two just one positive impact they made that day. “The real value of neighborhood public schools comes from all the people who work and learn in them,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “Each day, public educators strive to connect with each child and help them unlock their potential.
