Carolina Journal’s Barry Smith reports on gathering steam in North Carolina for empowering parents through school choice and competition.

A new political climate in the state capital could result in a number of school choice reforms enacted into law next year, a panel of legislators said Tuesday during a luncheon on school choice.

“We’re on the cusp of changing public schools and education in North Carolina,” Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, and co-chairman of the Senate Education/Higher Education Committee, said. 

The changes will bring competition to education in the state, a measure that will benefit students, Tillman said.
“Competition will make you better, or you will get out,” Tillman said.
