University of New Hampshire

In 2006–2007 New Hampshire had 12 public and 16 private institutions of higher education. The oldest and best known is Dartmouth College, at Hanover, which received its charter from King George III of Great Britain in 1769. The University of New Hampshire, the state’s land-grant university established in 1866, has its central campus at Durham. There are state colleges at Keene and Plymouth. The state also maintains two-year colleges. Other noted institutions include Saint Anselm College and New Hampshire College, in Manchester; Colby-Sawyer College, in New London; and Franklin Pierce College, in Rindge.

Public education in New Hampshire was established by law as early as 1647, when the colony was a part of Massachusetts. Until 1919, schools were largely under local supervision, and dependent on the town or district for financial support. Since that year public education has been under the control of a state board of education, composed of seven members appointed for five-year terms by the governor. Education is compulsory for all children aged 6 to 16. Private schools enroll 12 percent of the state’s children.

There were 13.1 students for every teacher (the national average was 15.5 students). Of those older than 25 years of age in 2007, 90.5 percent had a high school diploma, while the country as a whole averaged 84.5 percent. "New Hampshire" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
