Americans for Prosperity-NH Disappointed in Superior Court Ruling Limiting School Choice

June 17, 2013

MANCHESTER – Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire (AFP-NH) is expressing their disappointment in today’s Superior Court ruling regarding school choice in New Hampshire.

“We always anticipated this issue would find its way to the Supreme Court due in part to the rabid nature of those trying to wrestle control of the education of children away from New Hampshire families,” said Greg Moore, State Director of AFP-NH.  “We disagree with today’s ruling limiting choices being offered to New Hampshire families and remain committed to empowering parents to make the best possible choice regarding their children’s education.”

Today’s ruling was issued by Hon. John M. Lewis, Associate Justice Strafford County Superior Court, Dover and exempts religious schools from the education tax credit program established by the legislature last session.  An appeal to the Supreme Court is now likely.

“Parents know what is in the best interest of their children and should not have the educational opportunities of their children limited by the discretion of one judge,” Moore continued.  “We hope the Supreme Court will weigh in on this issue and place all options back on the table for New Hampshire families.”
