FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
October 17, 2019
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding today's Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) vote:
"Partisan Democrats, backed by special interests groups, continue to obstruct efforts to expand educational opportunity and choice. By voting against the Department of Education’s innovative Learn Everywhere program, Democrats are putting unions and their special interests ahead of students. Children are educated everyday by a variety of different community-based organizations, and solid, high-quality education from State Board of Education sanctioned organizations should qualify for credit just as much as solid, high-quality education in a public school. Today’s actions by JLCAR highlight that this legislature continues to be the most hyperpartisan legislature ever."
