NH Senate Must Pass HB 1403

HB 1403 will bring back local control. There is no excuse for a foreign political group to be directing education in New Hampshire’s schools.

It is very important that public school parents, home school parents, and taxpayers alike show up and testify on the importance of passing HB 1403 if they wish to keep our tax dollars from going out of the country to pay for a program, International Baccalaureate, that adds the UN’s political bias to school curricula. This program also affects all other programs in any school where it is implemented.

HB 1403 (see link for bill text) has been passed by an overwhelming margin in the House and now needs to pass the Senate.

The hearing is before the Senate Education Committee on 05/01/2012 at 01:00 PM in LOB room 306-308. The Committee will recommend that it either pass or fail. It would also help to write to all your Senators to tell them how important this is.

You can write to all of them using this email: Senators@leg.state.nh.us

If you cannot be at the hearing, please WRITE OR CALL the Senate Education Committee and ask them to support this bill.

IBO’s Director General Jeffrey Beard writes in the Concord Monitor. It is not uncommon for the IBO people to monitor our school board elections to make sure people who are favorable to their franchise get elected. Imagine, the UN, concerning itself with our local school board elections?
