North Carolina Governor Declares State of Emergency to Stop School Choice

Democratic Governor Roy Cooper came unhinged yesterday declaring that “public education in North Carolina is facing a state of emergency” and he called the education choice initiative that has passed the legislature “an atomic bomb on public education.”

The Governor warned that wider access to school choice “spells disaster for the schools.” Never mind that many of the kids can’t spell “disaster”.

The lead sponsor of the school choice bill, Democrat-turned-Republican Tricia Cotham, has a great response:

The Committee to Unleash Prosperity is currently running radio ads supporting the expansion of school choice in North Carolina – but it looks very likely it will have to be done by overriding the governor’s veto.
