Hooksett's choices: Leave them to parents
Hooksett, which tuitioned its high school students to Manchester for more than a century, grew frustrated with the city's schools in recent years and declared the city in breach of contract in 2012. The result was a settlement that let Hooksett out of its contract this year. The town school board then swiftly sought and obtained a long-term contract with Pinkerton Academy, but voters resoundingly rejected it last week.
Outgoing Hooksett School Board member Phil Denbow said after the election, "So this board is going to have to do a lot of work to figure out where the majority wants to go because at the end of the day, you have to have a plan."
Hooksett has no high school. There is no reason why the town must cut a deal to send all Hooksett high school students to the same school.
