Activism and Electioneering
One of the biggest complaints we have about the IB program is that it requires students to develop “attitudes” and “take action” that benefit UN pet projects regarding the UN’s global agenda. Likewise, we wonder if school officials have not also crossed the line and broken electioneering laws when they asked kids to take a political stand on HB 1403 and even offered them days off school for acting on them?
659:44-a Electioneering by Public Employees. – No public employee, as defined in RSA 273-A:1, IX, shall electioneer while in the performance of his or her official duties or use government property, including, but not limited to, telephones, facsimile machines, vehicles, and computers, for electioneering. For the purposes of this section, “electioneer” means to act in any way specifically designed to influence the vote of a voter on any question or office. Any person who violates this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
