We are oh so close to scoring another big win on parental choice in education in the Tar Heel State. The bill would double the number of NC families that would be eligible for a $7,000 scholarship to send their kids to alternative private and charter schools. The legislation has sailed through the House in Raleigh already and is likely to pass the Senate soon.
If that happens, all we need now is Governor Roy Cooper, a Democrat, to sign the bill or have his veto overridden.
The Committee to Unleash Prosperity is on the radio airwaves starting today across the state explaining and promoting the Opportunity Scholarships.
We will keep you posted on the outcome.
