Concord, NH- NH House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement after public testimony was received by the House Education Committee from the President of the Timberlane Teachers’ Association.
“It is appalling, although not surprising, that a teachers’ union believes they are above the law. They want to indoctrinate our children in the same Marxist theories they hold without any recourse. If teachers were actually teaching the facts and leaving their opinions out of their curriculum, they would have nothing to fear. Clearly that is not the case in our public schools.”
“In what world could a business live above the law and not have to answer to the very people who fund them, whether it’s a school, a private business or even the government? I can’t imagine Market Basket would survive much longer if they wanted to sell groceries without interference from customers.”
“These public educators must forget that their salaries are paid by the taxpayer, and by default, the parents whose children they are responsible for teaching. The email received by the Education Committee is just further evidence of why education choice is so badly needed in our state. School choice gives power back to our tax paying families and gives their children the best outcome possible.”
