Senate Democrats Stunt Charter School Growth

Concord, NH – Today, Senate Republicans offered the following statement regarding the cap on charter school enrollment, which eliminates 150 students on current rosters, contained in the senate passed budget:

 

“The cap will have the effect of turning our backs on kids that stand to benefit most from this type of education. This will devastate the kids and their families and tarnish New Hampshire’s reputation as being innovative and creative in educating our children,” said Senator Carson (R-Londonderry).

 

Republicans offered an amendment to remove the cap on charter school enrollment, which the Senate Democrats defeated.
