Abstract:
Although 68,000 workers' compensation claims were filed in North Carolina in 1999, the year was the fifth in a row that the number had declined. Rates have also declined or remained stable during the same period. Contributing to the decreases in claims is increased emphasis on safety, better job planning, and vigilance against fraudulent claims.

Abstract:
Charter schools, publicly funded but privately organized and operated, began operating in North Carolina in 1997.

Advocates feel the schools offer choices in education, but legislators are waiting for the state report on charter schools, due in January 2002, before adding more schools.
