Good news from New Hampshire

What seems to a right-direction trend towards school choice continues now in New Hampshire.  (Story here.)

The Legislature . . . overrode [Gov.] Lynch's tax-credit veto for businesses contributing to educational programs. The bill is intended to help some public school students switch to private schools.

Lynch argued the bill would allow private organizations to determine the use of public education funds and would shift limited state money away from public schools because districts would lose state education aid for each student receiving a scholarship.

"No parent should be forced to send a child to school that does not meet the child's needs," O'Brien said. "This is good legislation to allow parents to give their children the best chance possible to succeed. It makes school choice a reality for many children who lack the ability to find an educational environment where they can thrive."
