NH education official denies agency tried to kill funding-hike bill for charter schools

"I'm here to inform you of the underhanded dealings of the Department of Education, in the person of Deputy Commissioner Paul Leather," Rep. Ken Weyler, R-Kingston, the sponsor of the bill, told a charter school oversight committee. "A few select people were given the new note, not identified in the usual way as a fiscal note but sent from an opponent of charter schools showing a huge increase in charter school enrollment costs over the next five years."
