Concord, NH – Today, Governor Sununu signed into law SB 44, prohibiting the state from mandating local towns and school board to implement the Common Core academic standards.
After the signing Senator Kevin Avard (R-Nashua), prime sponsor of the bill, issued the following statement:
“We are taking a big step forward by pushing back against Washington and unelected bureaucrats who have no business telling parents and local schools what is best for our children,” said Senator Kevin Avard, prime sponsor of the legislation. “We are the Live Free or Die State and local communities should not be forced to adopt academic standards that do not fit the needs of our kids. I am pleased to stand with the Governor and the children of this state to create an education system that works for best for New Hampshire.”
