Excerpt: Last week, New Hampshire’s Department of Education made it easier for citizens to help enforce a law passed this summer that restricts how teachers can discuss race in the classroom. A new online questionnaire can now prompt investigations that could lead educators to lose their licenses. Days later, the state chapter of the conservative nonprofit Moms for Liberty, which advocates for parental rights in schools, sweetened the deal by offering a cash reward. “We’ve got $500 for the person that first successfully catches a public school teacher breaking this law,” the group tweeted on Nov. 12.
But Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, who ultimately signed the law, denounced Moms for Liberty’s incentive to report teachers. Sununu signed the law, known as Right to Freedom from Discrimination in Public Workplaces and Education, in late June as part of the state’s budget.
