Math Teacher And Member Of The NH Young Democrats Implores Council To Reject Edelblut

Concord, N.H. – Following  today’s Executive Council hearing on Frank Edelblut’s nomination to be Education Commissioner, Granite State math teacher Nathan Manna issued the following statement:

“After hearing overwhelming testimony against Mr. Edelblut’s nomination, I implore the Executive Council  to vote against  Frank Edelblut’s nomination. As a school teacher and young Granite Stater hoping to raise my family here, I find it unacceptable that a man who has zero experience in education and didn’t even educate his children in public schools has been chosen to run our state’s public school system. Mr. Edelblut believes he can  magically come in from the outside and improve our students’ lives, I can tell you as a professional that he will not.

“What is even more disturbing were the statements from Edelblut today where  he expressed his opposition to full-day kindergarten citing the ‘risks’ for children, refused to oppose conversation therapy, refused to oppose gun free school zones, and called education a “product”, not a public good. It is too great a risk to our young students to have a Commissioner who has no idea what he’s talking about.

“Councilors, I encourage you to go to teachers and students and ask them the ways in which we can improve our schools. Solutions will come from them, not from Frank Edelblut.”
