As teachers at Seacoast Charter School in Dover, we were disappointed to learn that New Hampshire’s Joint Legislative Fiscal Committee is considering saying “no, thanks” to a $46 million education grant from the federal government.
Turning down any funding for public school students doesn’t make much sense to us, but this issue strikes especially close to home because the proposed federal grant would be used to open or expand public charter schools. This money would give more students the opportunity to receive the kind of education that we provide at Seacoast Charter School.
