N.H. Initiative Would Offer Students Credit for Out-of-Class Learning
An education initiative being pushed by New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu would incentivize learning outside the classroom.
Officials say the Learn Everywhere program aims to give students high school credit for internships and other after-school activities.
Educators, however, did voice concern about the initiative during a hearing, arguing a state-run, work-based program could undermine local programs.
Advocates say a state-run program would benefit those living in school districts without resources to establish their own programs.
