"Perhaps Betsy DeVos  is throwing $46 million in federal money at New Hampshire in an effort to destroy the state’s public schools. It will double the number of charter schools in the state. GOP Gov.Chris Sununu  who appoints the State Board of Ed. & the state commissioner of education,  Frank Edelblut, who  has a vision of deschooling or unschooling, disestablishing public schools  proposed a program -- “Learn Everywhere,” which would compel districts  to pay for programs offered by for-profits which Sununu’s State Board approved. Edelblut says public schools will “save money,” because they will cut programs and lay off teachers. Public money will flow to private providers and there will be less for public schools. He likes that. A state  legislative committee is trying to block  Learn Everywhere, saying that the state can’t tell districts how to spend money."
