DNHPE 5/3/12 Special Mini-Update: Hot editorials to send to legislators!

posted May 8, 2012, 3:51 PM by Bill Duncan

Here are two editorials from New Hampshire's two most conservative newspapers that it would be great if Defenders of New Hampshire public education could send as widely as possible to our Legislators.

The first is in today's Union Leader: It says, "The International Baccalaureate (IB) program grew out of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. So it must be a Commie plot to take over America." 

The second is the "Choice for all must be the promise," editorial in yesterday's Foster's: "Ideologically, it is easy to support legislative efforts by school choice advocates. In practice, the decision is not so clear cut."  Together with other rumblings among conservatives, even leadership, in the House, it begins to sound as if the the mood could be taking a turn in our direction.

The UL editorial on IB should go to Senators (emails here).  The Foster's piece should go, separately, to both Senators and members of the House (House member emails here if you know the name, here if you don't.).  They don't have to be only your own delegation - send widely.  But they will be most effective if you send them individually and include a tiny note.

These are great.  Let's make the most of them.
