State Board of Education Approves Holocaust and Genocide Education Rules

Statement from the board

"As the month of April is recognized as Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Month, the State Board of Education announces the approval of new Holocaust and Genocide education rules for the State of New Hampshire. Clearly understanding how the Holocaust and other genocides occurred may be key to preventing similar violence in the future, which is why education on this sensitive topic is vitally important to promote peace among future generations. We take this moment to reflect on the millions of Jews and others whose lives were cut short through unimaginable pain, and remember how that hatred can still result in brutal consequences. Learning from this tragedy and remaining watchful is a step toward peace."
