AFT-NH Statement on Additional Lawsuit Against Divisive Concepts Law
CONCORD, N.H.—Statement by AFT-New Hampshire President Deb Howes on a lawsuit brought by the NEA-NH challenging the constitutionality of New Hampshire’s so-called divisive concepts law. AFT-NH, three New Hampshire public school teachers and two parents filed a federal lawsuit over the law on Dec. 13.
“This lawsuit adds an additional voice to the growing chorus of challenges to the so-called divisive concepts law. The law is unconstitutionally and hopelessly vague, making it impossible for teachers to know what and how to teach and jeopardizing the ability of our students to learn important concepts. The law must be struck down. We stand with NEA-NH in opposing this law.”
