Senate Bill 193, to establish an Education Savings Account program for New Hampshire families, was simple and efficient. Then the House Finance Committee got hold of it.
In the name of saving money, the proposed committee amendment dramatically reduces eligibility to 185 percent of the federal poverty level for new entrants and 300 percent once a student receives a scholarship, strips kindergarteners and first graders, and reduces the stabilization grants districts would receive from the state. (The last is fine, as districts would keep more than 98 percent of their operating budgets under the bill.) | More at School Choice for NH
