House Budget and Parental School Choicer

Raleigh, NC (April 6, 2023) -- Mike Long, President of Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina, released the following statement in regard to the NC House of Representative's budget.

"We applaud leadership in the North Carolina House of Representatives for passing a budget that seeks to expand parental school choice. While we believe more can be done to fund students over systems, we are hopeful that through the budget process, we will see a state budget that expands access to educational options like North Carolina’s Opportunity Scholarship Program and funding equity for our state’s public charter schools. We are encouraged by bold approaches to education reform like in House Bill 420 and Senate Bill 406. We look forward to our state leaders creating more pathways to educational dollars following our state’s students."
