NH School Funding Fairness Project

The Chester School Board has been informed that the upcoming NH School Funding Fairness Project presentations will now be held virtually instead of in person. Your local School Board has been asked to pass along the information regarding the three upcoming Virtual Sessions. 

Their goal is to educate Granite Staters on the inequities in the state’s school funding system, and empower citizens to take action. Presentations will highlight the ways in which a lack of state education funding leads to over reliance on local property taxes, explore the inequitable and unconstitutional discrepancies between different communities’ per-pupil spending and tax rates, and discuss alternatives to this broken system.

“The NH School Funding Fairness Project (NHSFFP) is a non-partisan non-profit organization dedicated to using grassroots and legislative advocacy to raise awareness of, and spearhead a comprehensive solution to, the twin crises of inequitable school funding and property taxes in the Granite State. Over the past three years we have presented all over the state to the public, business leaders, civic organizations, parent and teacher groups, and everyone in between. Starting in January we will embark on a 25-town tour to continue educating Granite Staters on the inequities in the state’s school funding system and empower citizens to take action.
 
“Presentations are open to the public and all are welcome! Use the registration links below to learn more and register. To ensure the safety of attendees and our staff, we have decided to host these events virtually instead of in person.
