Today we celebrate National Education Support Professionals (ESP) Day.

Each year, we set aside the Wednesday of American Education Week, to celebrate and express our gratitude to the Education Support Professionals who make New Hampshire public schools such great places to learn. Education Support Professionals work tirelessly to serve our children and communities with care and professionalism. They are often the first to arrive at school and among the last to leave for the day. This school year, NEA-NH is embarking on a program to make the public aware of the hard work and the value of our ESP members. Until voters recognize what ESP do every day to help their children succeed, they will continue to be under appreciated, underpaid, and over worked. Our hope is that through education, people will come to better understand the crucial role

Charter Grant Has Far Too Many Unanswered Questions

NEA-NH President Megan Tuttle released the following statement today: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Yet, this is exactly what we have come to expect from programs and initiatives championed by our education commissioner, Frank Edelblut. First it was the hype and misdirection surrounding his “Learn Everywhere” rules. Now it’s his “look I found $46 million for our charter schools with no strings attached” plan. Let’s be clear: the money Commissioner Edelblut is peddling from Betsy DeVos will cost New Hampshire far more than $46 million over five years and will do nothing to help the overwhelming majority of students in our state. If, as the commissioner says, there are no strings attached to this money, then why has the grant application for the funds

Saugus School Shooting Cannot Be Just Another School Day in America

There was a shooting at another high school in America today. Our schools should be the safest place a child can be. Unfortunately, that seems far from reality. “We do not need to debate one day longer on why mass killings take place in America. We’ve seen far too many people killed in schools, in houses of worship, in malls, at movie theaters and stores. We know killers commit these violent acts because they have far too easy access to lethal weapons,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “New Hampshire has been fortunate to have been spared the agony of identifying educators and student victims and notifying their families that their loved ones will not be coming home.”   “Earlier this year, Governor Chris Sununu vetoed three bills which would have
