I would like to take a moment to describe something very different from the norm. Democrats have turned their noses up at a $46 million gift from the federal government in the form of a no-cost grant for public education.
The Democratic-controlled Joint Legislative Fiscal Committee recently voted, not once but twice to turn down a $46 million federal grant to expand education innovation and charter schools in New Hampshire.
Thanks to Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut and his staff, the approved grant was twice the amount approved for any other state.
