NH House Education Committee Executive Session on SB337

Golly. I didn't see that coming...

For the "instant gratification" crowd, we were probably half-way into the session before it finally hit me what appeared to be happening. The now-amended bill drops the plan-reporting requirement and creates a study commission, and even that barely earned an OTP recommendation, with an anemic 9-8 vote, 5/6/2008.

This nonsense can still die. Contact your Representatives. Tell 'em SB337 ("relative to home education of children"), even "as amended," still isn't good enough. Scrap the whole thing. Nonexistent problems simply don't need "solutions." If it ain't broke, don't break it.

And strap in. It's gonna be an interesting House floor debate, likely next week. Check the House Calendar for specifics, and watch it online, live or archived, here...

  1. This is what happens when citizens get involved. Having 500 people show up at the state house does have a big impact. Without that, the unamended bill would have passed easily.
