The New Hampshire Communities for Adequate Funding of Education ("NHcafe"), a coalition of nineteen school district units and towns, will present three proposed solutions to School Funding on February13th from 6:45 to 9 pm at the Londonderry High School .
We will be hearing from proponents of three differing proposals. Andy Peterson is a former state senator and newly elected state representative from Peterborough . Fred Bramante is the well-known owner of the Daddy’s Junky Music chain of music stores and is a member and former chairman of the New Hampshire Board of Education. Michael Asselin is a former state representative where he served on the House Education committee and is a member of a bi-partisan group of legislators looking at education funding.
NHcafe members, interested citizens, Representatives, and other government officials are encouraged to attend. DVD’s will be made available of the presentations for others throughout the State that have been fighting for adequate funding for over a decade.
The New Hampshire Communities for Adequate Funding of Education were successful challenging the state on its latest school funding plan. The bill was found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in September of last year. The court has ordered the State to define, cost out, provide, and have a clear easy to understand explanation of what is provided. It must do so by June of this year or the court will step in at that time.
