How The NH School Boards Association Put Children At Risk for Sexual Assault

Most school districts pay the New Hampshire School Boards Association (NHSBA) dues out of the school budget.  This means that taxpayers are funding a lobbying organization that promoted a policy that put every child in New Hampshire at risk of sexual assault.  The NHSBA sent a model policy to school districts that paid dues to their organization.

Why You Should Vote for Dan Hynes in Senate District 09 over Terry Wolf

People have asked me why I support Dan Hynes for Senate over Terry Wolf– especially since I respect and like Terry very much.

The former Superintendent, Chip McGee, who resigned after the recent controversy involving school counselors that spoke on behalf of a convicted child molester, had a history of failing students in Bedford.  Terry supported his promotion from Assistant Superintendent to Superintendent when she served on the School Board. I have been an outspoken critic of the failed Everyday Math program that’s been used in Bedford for many years. I even had a lengthy discussion with  Chip McGee about how the math program needed to be improved.  I went so far as to have him contact Math Professor David Klein to speak to the deficiencies in Everyday Math.  Prof. Klein was involved with reviewing, and has spoken publicly about how Everyday Math failed children across the country. According to Sylvan Learning Centers in Bedford, tutoring students wasn’t needed, until they adopted Everyday Math.  Now it’s...
