Urgent: Stop Charter Expansion in New Hampshire - NPE Action from the NETWORK FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION: "Betsy DeVos has a plan for New Hampshire squeeze its public schools by doubling the number of charter schools in the state. That plan even involves hiring two new bureaucrats in the State Education Department to push this charter school plan.

""Charter schools drain funding from public schools. In a state as small as New Hampshire, the doubling of charter schools will have a devastating effect. If this is a gift from Betsy DeVos's Education Department, how can it be good for New Hampshire's public schools?"

"Right now send this email to the legislature telling them to vote to REJECT the DeVos Charter School Program grant.

"Then pick up the phone and call your representatives. You can find who they are with their number here.

This creature person belongs in prison; banned from doing business in any form...FOREVER. 4/5ths of her fortune seized and disbursed to the public school system.

Same thing for her mercenary brother.
