Two Major Education Issues This Year: Homeschooling & School Choice

Boy_-studying-472x300.jpg

One education bill, HB 1263, would increase accountability and oversight for home-schooling, an idea debated in other states this year, and sparking huge opposition at a recent hearing in New Hampshire.  The other bill, SB 193, concerns school choice, and whether families can access taxes raised for public education to finance an alternative. 

GUESTS:

  • Jason Moon - Education and Seacoast reporter for NHPR.
  • Lola Duffort - Education reporter for the Concord Monitor.
