Report: NH schools are doing a terrible job with teacher background checks

CONCORD - A survey done by USA Today says New Hampshire isn't doing a good enough job when it comes to teacher background checks.

State education officials were surveyed about how they background teachers and share information about disciplinary actions against teachers in their states.

Answers were then verified and compared against best practices, and each state was then assigned a letter grade depending on how well it handled the criteria based on background checks, transparency, mandatory reporting laws, and sharing misconduct information.

New Hampshire got an F, one of 13 states to get the low grade.

In New England, Massachusetts and Maine also received an F.

Vermont got an A.

Take a look at the full survey here.
