Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire State Director Greg Moore issued the following statement:

“This remote learning shift has changed how students study, forcing many parents to adjust to working from home while helping their child’s in-home education. While this abrupt shift was unexpected, education isn’t a place, it is an experience and children can learn anywhere. We’re excited to talk with two of our state’s education leaders to see what policies are helping parents and educators adapt to continuing our students’ education. We’re also thrilled to have the opportunity to share some ideas and tips that can help parents and students navigate at-home learning.  Obviously, it’s been a challenging time for many families, and we want to help them get the most out of this experience.”
