Legislature Approves Education Grant, Increases Education Access for Granite Staters

Dec 11, 2020 by AFP

CONCORD, NH – Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire (AFP-NH) today commended the Joint Legislative Fiscal Committee for approving a $46 million federal grant to charter schools.

AFP-NH Deputy Director of Grassroots Operations Sarah Scott issued the following statement:

“For too long, legislators refused to extend educational resources for Granite State students. This grant will help students and families have access to an education that works for them. The pandemic demonstrated our current, one-size-fits-all system is too rigid and inflexible to allow every kid to discover, develop, and apply their unique talents. We commend legislators for approving this grant, and we urge them to continue working to expand educational opportunity so every family and student can have a more personalized education regardless of their income or ZIP code.”

Background:

Last year, AFP-NH Deputy Director Sarah Scott wrote an op-ed in the Concord Monitor on why legislators should approve the federal grant.
