Every incumbent school board member should be voted out after the way NH has plummeted in the school rankings over the past decade. It's an outrage and a coup is needed to remove the current cabal.

Can you describe in detail how "NH has plummeted in the school rankings over the past decade", or at least point to where such rankings can be found?

Not helpful. NHSD was in the top 20% of all schools in 2013. But what was the ranking in 2003, i.e., how far have they "plummeted" in the past decade?

That link led me to pages and pages of information on how well the District is performing and how it outperforms other districts of similar socio-economic status. I guess that you were just joking with your silly post about "plummeting" in some fantasy school rankings, huh?
