New Hampshire Commissioner of Eduction, Frank Edelblut, will be moving forward with reviewing the Common Core Standards currently used in New Hampshire.  Common Core has driven many parents to pull their children out of the public schools. Unfortunately the appointed Board of Education has tried to derail these efforts.

Parents have testified on several occasions since 2010 in an effort to rid New Hampshire of Common Core. They’ve signed petitions, started a web site and even a face book page all in an effort to organize efforts to improve the academic standards.

With the review process starting, it’s important to let the NH Board Members know you do not support their efforts to stop Commissioner Edeblut’s review of all of the academic standards.

Upcoming meetings are listed here : Parents are invited to speak during public comments at the beginning of the meetings.  The meetings start at 9a.m. and are held at the New Hampshire Department of Education at 101 Pleasant St. Concord, NH.

If you cannot make a meeting, send an e-mail to the board members and Commissioner Edelblut: &
