Trump budget threatens after-school programs for more than 10,000 N.H. students

Fourth-grader Ally Moore was wrapping up her reading homework a little before 4 p.m.

Ally, a student at Abbot-Downing School in Concord, said she probably gets the most help when it comes to writing. But the best part of her after-school program? That’s what comes after homework.

“I like the clubs the best. They’re usually pretty fun – like arts and crafts, or inventing things,” she said.

Next, Ally would go to the cafeteria, where students split into groups of five or six and worked on a Lego challenge. Down the hall in the gym, first- through fifth-graders were inventing sports games and teaching their peers how to play them.

2. Not surprising, GOP hates education.

This is what his voters want.

They dont like education and least of all helping the needy. That is why there is not a single christian who voted for trump.
