Public Statement

On April 9, 2019, Republican House leaders introduced HB 655, which offers a North Carolina approach to providing healthcare coverage to these uninsured North Carolinians. HB 655 appears to have been written to appeal to a broad portion of the political spectrum and provides a foundation for further consideration by the NC General Assembly. We thank its sponsors for their committed work and leadership.

An Open Letter from Bonnie Bechard & Mary Kolek, LWV-Lower Cape Fear

In our study “NC Private Schools Receiving Vouchers: A Study of the Curriculum”, the League of Women Voters of North Carolina found that more than three-fourths of schools receiving vouchers in North Carolina use a curriculum in the Sciences, History, Government, and Literature, that is not accepted by major universities and which educators criticize as lacking academic rigor and critical thinking.

The League of Women Voters released an analysis today that calls into question how some of North Carolina’s Opportunity Scholarships are being spent. The author’s research indicates that approximately 77% of private schools receiving vouchers are using curricula that do not comply with state standards, leaving many students unprepared for college level coursework or careers in certain fields.
