JR Hoell http://nhpr.org en House Hears Bill To Allow Students To Drop Any Class http://nhpr.org/post/house-hears-bill-allow-students-drop-any-class <p>The New Hampshire House is considering a plan to allow students replace any two public school courses with courses designed and taught by a parent or their designee.&nbsp;</p><p>Under the bill, schools couldn&rsquo;t veto subjects or teaching methods of parents but would have to grant students credits toward graduation. The measure&rsquo;s sponsor, JR Hoell of Dunbarton, says the proposal affords parents a needed bit of freedom.</p><p>&ldquo;Parents are taking a greater role in overseeing the academic progress of their children; the school system is taking a reduced role.&rdquo;</p> Wed, 25 Jan 2012 22:49:23 +0000 Josh Rogers 1563 at http://nhpr.org
