Veto Protects Educational Opportunity for Granite Staters

Jul 24, 2020 by AFP

CONCORD, NH – Following Governor Sununu’s veto of HB1454, which blocks the Learn Everywhere program allowing students to receive credit for completed courses that prioritize work-based learning, Americans for Prosperity Deputy Director of Grassroots Operations Sarah Scott issued the following statement:

“Now more than ever, we should enable students and families to receive opportunities outside the classroom to develop the skills they need. This veto ensures our students aren’t restricted to a one-size fits all education experience that may not work for them. Instead of forcing a top-down education system onto students, legislators need to put students as the focus and create more educational opportunities that address the needs of individual students.”

Background:

The New Hampshire legislature passed legislation to allow the Learn Everywhere program in 2018. This year, the House passed HB 1454 which was then amended by the Senate and sent to the House today for a concurrence vote.
