NH has received approval of our Ensuring Equitable Access for all Students to Excellent Educators Plan and continues to take promising steps to eliminate the gaps some students face in access to excellent educators by implementing strategies and innovative solutions to challenging problems that meet local needs.
New Hampshire has the lowest percentage of school-aged children living in poverty in the United States; however there are still many areas in our state where poverty, language barriers and lack of resources challenge our schools. These are our most vulnerable students who truly need exposure to the best teachers possible to achieve academic success and thus break the cycle of poverty. The New Hampshire Equity Plan was established to focus on this challenge. What can be done statewide to support and aid schools and districts in recruiting and retaining excellent educators? That is the challenging task before us. We want and need effective teachers in every classroom in the state, especially those in high poverty regions. The New Hampshire Ensuring Equitable Access for all Students to Excellent Educators Plan is an opportunity for the entire New Hampshire community to understand a systems-approach that analyzes, revises and expands on current initiatives to assure that the focus remains on providing equitable access to excellent educators for all students in New Hampshire.
