School Choice to be Decided on Next Week
One of the most important issues to be taken up by the Legislature this session is giving additional education opportunities to students in New Hampshire who currently only have one choice. This has been an important issue of ours for the past decade and will come to ahead next Wednesday in the House. The House will decide the fate of the School Choice Scholarship Act, which will make a huge difference in the lives of kids across the state. No longer will school choice just be an option for the wealthy; this bill opens the gates for the lower and middle income families to have that choice too.
