Housing and Schools: How Educators can Help Students

Quick! Do housing and land use policies come to mind when you think about what’s necessary for all students to learn to their fullest potential? If you’re like most people, probably not. But housing and land use policies, concludes a new report, have a “significant effect on schools” and can “affect enrollment trends, concentrations of poverty and school diversity, school funding, stability of enrollment vs. ‘churning’ of students, and [the] ability of students to complete their homework and focus during the school day.”

House Sends Bill to Require Menstrual Products in Schools To Governor

The New Hampshire House voted in favor of a bill that would require all female and gender-neutral bathrooms in middle and high schools in the state to stock free menstrual products. NEA-NH strongly supported this bill. The bill was spearheaded by 17-year-old Spaulding High School student Caroline Dillon of Rochester. “By most measures, we offer some of the highest quality of living measures in the country,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “But in New Hampshire, some middle and high school girls have to either miss school because of their monthly periods or leave class to go to the nurse’s office and wait in line to get access to feminine hygiene products.” Going to the nurse a few times a day for feminine hygiene products takes away from instructional time and
