Governor Lynch Statement Regarding Override Vote on HB 542

Statement

By:  John Lynch

Location: Concord, NH

Governor John Lynch today issued the following statement regarding the House's failure to override HB 542, which would have allowed a parent to determine if any course material is "objectionable" and require school districts to develop an alternative. The bill gave every individual parent of every student in a classroom a veto over every single lesson plan developed by a teacher:

"This bill had the potential to disrupt classrooms and learning across the state. It would have been difficult, and potentially costly for school districts to administer. I am pleased a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House stood together to reject this severely flawed legislation which would have damaged educational quality in New Hampshire."
