But the education system run by politicians continues to get worse in every way. No matter who is elected and no matter how much pressure parents place on the educators, the system keeps getting worse and never seems to improve in any meaningful way. It is time to get the government completely out of education. Here are the top reasons we must do this as soon as possible:
Once New Hampshire leaves the union, what would our education system look like? Would it collapse without federal funding and support? Would our students suffer? Would we still be able to transfer seamlessly between colleges in other states of the union?
Let’s begin by taking a quick look at the education system within New Hampshire:
Concerned parents, teachers, and staff have been labeled akin to “domestic terrorists” at the recent Timberlane School Board meetings over the last few months. In November 2021, Nolan Pelletier (chairman of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire and concerned parent) was arrested for “criminal trespass” or, in other words, he chose to not segregate himself in the “disabled” section for his choice not to wear a mask.
The recently passed NH Freedom Accounts allow parents to recoup part of the labor their property taxes stole from them to pay for these, their preferred schools. Choose the school that best serves you and your family, and if none currently serves, work with parents and teachers to start one yourself.
Legislation currently in the New Hampshire State House of Representatives aims to stop the propagation of ‘divisive concepts’, including racism in government institutions. HB544 recently garnered national media attention when it became a topic on the Mark Levin Show on March 18th 2021. It was also picked up by the Blaze Media op-ed column on the same day.
On September 12th, The New York Post reported that New York City officials will allow students to skip school on Friday for the ‘global warming’ rally in Manhattan. Both Mayor DeBlasio and the NYC Dept. of Education have publicly supported the political rally which they are encouraging students to attend.
The government and private schools in New Hampshire have produced a student body consisting of 64% of students who are ‘partially proficient’ or ‘substantially below proficient’? Why are these politicians telling you that they can educate your children better than you can?
