Important House Bill - House Bill 39


Dear Parents,

I am writing today with great urgency.

If you care about your child’s education in NH, please take a moment to read this brief note.  We each need to get a message to our NH State Representatives right away.

Beginning January 25, 2011, the House Education Committee will conduct its first hearing on House Bill (HB) 39.
If passed, HB 39 will remove Arts Education, Health Education, World Languages, and Technology Education from the current criteria for a “substantive” and “adequate” education for students in New Hampshire. The ramifications will be devastating for music programs, language, and the well-rounded education of your child.
Please contact your local representatives. Testimony is permitted and statements will be accepted via postal or email if you cannot attend in person. Information for contacting your local NH representatives and this committee is located on http://gencourt.state.nh.us. The bill is posted on this website and will also be available on www.nhmea.org.
 
The first hearing by the House Education Committee
Tuesday, January 25, at 10:30 AM
Room 207 of the Legislative Office Building, Concord
(directly behind the State House)

Remember, testimony is permitted and written statements may also be submitted at the hearing, or via postal mail or e-mail. Our children deserve a better education than this.
