A Rock and a Hard Place

Record #:
Last year, Senate Bill 8 removed the limit of 100 charter schools within the state and currently nine applications await approval from the State Board of Education. Governor Bev Perdue appealed to assembly members to grant more money to public schools which would be affected by newly opened charter schools in their district. The issue of education has become highly politicized within the state; Republicans back charter schools and Democrats support the public school system.
