N.H. News Recap: State argues "divisive concepts" law in court; flu vaccines and COVID boosters
The first official complaint against a teacher for violating New Hampshire's so-called "divisive concepts" law has been filed with the state. The state is defending the law in court as a group of public school employees argue it has had a chilling effect on classroom discussions.
