Senator Shaheen introduces legislation for schools to get help to send students to science, technology, engineering and math cometitions
Thursday, May 23, 2013
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Schools that want to send students to robotics competitions and other contests that promote science, technology, engineering and math would get some help under legislation introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire.
The bill Shaheen filed Thursday would create a grant program within the U.S. Department of Education. The money could be used to pay for equipment or facility use fees connected to robotics competitions, to provide stipends for teachers or to cover the costs of entering competitions. Preference would be given to rural or urban schools, schools in low-income areas or low-performing schools, and schools would be required to provide a 50 percent match.
Shaheen says boosting access to so-called STEM education will foster innovation and create a globally competitive workforce.
New Hampshire woman sentenced for sexual exploitation of teenage daughter
Thursday, May 23, 2013
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for sexually exploiting her teenage daughter to produce child pornography.
The woman - a 43-year-old Manchester lawyer - was convicted in January of transporting her daughter across state lines to produce child pornography, possession of child pornography and six counts of sexual exploitation to produce child pornography. She had faced up to 100 years in prison at her sentencing hearing Thursday.
The Associated Press doesn't typically identify victims of sexual assault and is not naming the mother to avoid identifying her daughter.
A jury convicted the woman after a two-day trial that featured a series of sexually explicit videos she made of her 14-year-old daughter.
