School Boards: Making a Difference at the Local Level

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ever wonder what difference the school board can make? Join a group of liberty-minded current and former school board members from across the state, and some involved residents, to share their experiences challenging the status quo and to discuss what types of changes the school board can effect. One example is that the NH School Board Association tries to run local school boards: standing up to them would be a start.
