Two Major Education Issues This Year: Homeschooling & School Choice

Feb 2, 2018

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.
