Opinion: Is New Hampshire facing another education funding crisis?

The problem with our education funding system is obvious. The average per-student cost in New Hampshire is over $15,000. The state’s share of the expense is about $3,600. The state’s position that we can adequately educate all of our children for $3,600 each does not pass the “straight face” test. Meanwhile, charter schools receive a little over $6,600 per student from the state. If charter schools need $6,600 per student, why aren’t public schools receiving equal funding?
