Back from the beach, time to catch up

NC Policy Watch published three interesting articles this weekend that you might have missed if you were traveling. It is worth your time to read them.

Chris Fitzsimon’s commentary “An assault on families and schools” points to the huge holes that will be created in North Carolina’s social safety net if the Legislature adopts the House version of the budget.

Rob Schofield sheds a positive light on what the moderate business community has done to improve the quality of life in our state but goes on to warn what could happen if recent trends continue in his commentary “Veering dangerously to the right.”

Progressive Voices commentator Ian Palmquest writes in favor of the School Violence Prevention Act in his article “Bullying Kills.”
