PEFNC Applauds Parental School Choice Expansion in HB823

Mike Long, President of Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina, on the passage of a historic parental school choice bill, HB 823:

"I applaud the North Carolina House for passing HB 823, Choose Your School, Choose Your Future, legislation that will further prioritize parental school choice and funding North Carolina's students over systems. We have seen through this bill, its companion in the Senate (SB 406), and the proposed Senate budget, leadership in the House and Senate dedicated to empowering families by having their tax dollars in their child's backpack and allowing them to attend the school that best fits their needs. By expanding parental school choice, our state continues to take steps towards real education reform that ensures quality education for all families. We urge the Senate to pass SB 406, with support from both sides of the aisle, and for the state legislature to pass a budget that funds students, not systems.”
