Despite intense public and legislative debate over education funding in New Hampshire, most New Hampshire residents are uninformed about educational outcomes and spending at their local public schools. While about half of state residents rate their schools as good to excellent, only a small number have an accurate understanding of how well their schools performed on state-wide standardized tests. The findings point to a need to examine the processes by which residents learn about their local schools. NH Civic Exchange
