Liberty legislators reconvene to oppose the Common Core

Here is a press conference organized by Rep. Jane Cormier (R-Alton), apparently in support of all five of the bills seeking to end the Common Core in New Hampshire.

This gathering of public education opponents included former representative Greg Hill, most famous for saying that the goal of private school vouchers is to get “as many students as possible out of the ‘system‘.”  Lenette Peterson (R-Merrimack), who speaks second, wanted to abolish DOE and end compulsory school attendance in the last Legislature and proposes in the current session (HB 1508) to end the Common Core in New Hampshire.  Ralf Boehm (R-Litchfield) is there.  Although he is a member of the House Education Committee, he supported bills in the last Legislature to end universal kindergarten and lower the dropout age.  Freshman legislator David Murotake (R-Nashua) is there too.  He has sponsored three of the five anti-Common Core bills.  And then there are the Cornerstone and other liberty advocates who frequently testify for vouchers and against the Common Core.
