Our motto is “Live Free or Die,” but we don’t have the freedom to choose when it comes to education. Join us in support of Education Savings Accounts to give parents and students educational freedom.
Under this program, parents and students will have the opportunity to design an educational program that works for their kids through an education savings account, or ESA. These flexible accounts allow parents to fully customize their child’s education to best meet their learning needs through tuition at another public school outside their district, tutoring, online learning, textbooks, educational therapies and other education-related services and products.
Throughout New Hampshire, local public schools are doing a great job for most students. But what about those students who are struggling and need something different, or the parent who has found a private alternative that will work better for their child?
In a narrow defeat, the House did not vote in favor of an amended version of the ESA legislation, killing the bill for this legislative session. Despite this setback, the momentum for educational freedom in New Hampshire is strong and growing. Families’ desire to provide the best learning environment for their children will not be dimmed. We remain hopeful that lawmakers will make empowering parents and students with educational opportunities a priority and take this critical step that will change the lives of families and students.
