NH Students Deserve a Commissioner of Education Who Is QUALIFIED & SUPPORTS Public Education


 
Frank Edelblut is a full-throated proponent of school choice, which would mean taking money and jobs away from public schools and sending them to charter and private schools. Simply put – it’s outsourcing! 
 
He is totally unqualified for the job of leading the NH’s public school system, as he has never worked in one, sent his children to one or even served on a school board! Edelblut also supports Right-to-Work.
