North Carolina Bill Will Give Underserved Children the Chance for a Better Education

Low-income students’ dream of getting a high-quality education may soon become a reality.

Republicans on Thursday introduced House Bill 32, Equity in Opportunity Act, to expand the state’s Opportunity Scholarship program. The bill would put options like private school, home schooling, and micro-schools within reach for the first time for many. The bill would also simplify scholarship programs for special needs students, and would provide an outreach program to simplify the registration process.
