A Brief Update with Good News!

I just received word from some of the senators on the Senate Education Committee that two bills have been killed/laid on the table by them and not recommended for the Senate Floor (which traditionally means it will not be brought forth).

1.  HB 370--The Bullying Law will stay as it is and not be ammended to remove cyberbullying from the school's responsibilities!

2.  HB 542--Compulsory education in the state of NH for students 6-16 will remain in effect!

Congratulations and thanks to all who have written--there is still a great deal at stake though, so please, if you haven't done so already, write about the other bills that are undergoing discussion--they will be up for a vote very soon!  Our senators are listening to parents and teachers, and this instills hope in me about what can be done by the people in a state like ours.

On Tuesday I have a meeting with Kelly Ayotte--so now it's time to bone up on national education news!
