Rubens wrote the law that established charter schools in NH

Jim Rubens, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, will begin a tour on Monday of charter schools throughout the state beginning in Nashua.  As state senator, Rubens brought forward a bold idea and wrote and lead passage of New Hampshire's charter school law.

Before embarking on the tour, Rubens said, "Entrepreneurial and educational excellence are key characteristics that describe the charter school system in NH. An idea that was  once considered bold, these institutions now represent what are some of the top-testing schools in NH.  They save taxpayers money and help create jobs.  I saw that first-hand when I visited the Robert Frost Charter School in North Conway a couple weeks ago.  There, they actually lowered special education costs."

The first stop on the tour will be at the Academy for Science and Design.  This will be a two-hour event that will include a welcome and tour of the school, panel discussion with students and lunch with the student panelists.
