Parental Prerogative in Public Education

Jan 17, 2012

A new law allows parents who object to certain classroom materials to request alternative coursework for their child.  Governor Lynch vetoed the bill last year, but the legislature recently overrode that veto.  We’ll look at arguments for and against this law, and how school districts may adapt.   


  • J. Scott Moody, Vice President of Policy at Cornerstone Policy Research and Cornerstone Action
  • Rhonda Wesolowski, President of NEA-NH.

We'll also hear from:

  • Rep. JR Hoell, Republican from Dunbarton and sponsor of HB542.
  • Mark Joyce, Executive Director of the New Hampshire School Administrators Association.
