State Senate Votes for Educational Freedom Accounts

Choice programs empower families to find education settings that work for their children

CONCORD- Today, the New Hampshire State Senate passed and tabled Senate Bill 130 establishing Education Freedom Accounts. 

Below is a statement from New Hampshire Department of Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut.

“I am encouraged by the Senate actions today on Senate Bill 130. This moves forward the important policy of creating education options for all families and is a big step in the process of ensuring that all families and students across the state have a voice in their education. The tabling of the bill is just one more step in the legislative process and I am confident that New Hampshire can continue to work on this policy. Choice programs empower families to find education settings that work for their children. Choice programs such as this are taking shape in states across the country and it is only a matter of time before New Hampshire finds a place for a similar policy in our state.”
