    “North Carolina has made tremendous strides in education since 2001.”

    What exactly are you basing this on? Over 36% of high school students can not pass their reading and math ABCs end-of-grade tests.

    The current system of educracy is a failed model and throwing more money at it is bad for our state. We need more competition in the system so parents have a choice where to send their children, not more of the same.
