    So much for the TP being concerned with spending and big gov't. In New Hampshire, parents can now object to school curriculum, forcing the school district to come up with new lesson plans for the children of the parents who file the objection.

    Great job, guys. I see you have your priorities in line.

    My son, who got all A's in grade school, began to fail in JR high.
    The schools response; Lets do more of the same. They failed him, of course, so now I have to come up with ~$7500 for professional tutoring, just to get my son back on track.

    so if some people want to fix the broken school system, we should be cheering them on.

    Not being hate filled partisan hacks and crying like bitches b/c it's not our teams idea.

    It is kind of sad that a vast majority of legislators in a blue state feel the need to allow parents say in what they have already paid for through taxes.

    What a weird world we live in.

    Those horrible people who want to actually be involved in their children's life! How the heck is Jose going to brainwash our children if we keep interfering.

    Yes, lets allow the parents with literally little to no knowledge of the subject matters have control of how it is taught.

    Makes absolutely awesome sense to me.

    The last thing we want is parents taking responsibility for how their children are raised. That's the government's job.

    Parents don't know basic algebra?

    I know, let's just have our children taught 'to the test' and forget the rest.

    I think the responsibility of teaching a child about a subject should be someone with actual knowledge of the subject.

    Or would you have an electrician teach your child biology?
