The News & Observer interviewed Terry Stoops about Wake County public schools’ plan to offer free breakfast in selected schools. The Cary News picked up that story, while Eastern Wake News published a story featuring Stoops’ input about summer reading camps tied to the state’s Read to Achieve law. A Fayetteville Observer column cited John Locke Foundation Director of Regulatory Studies Jon Sanders‘ analysis of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, for energy sources. N.C. Senate Republicans promoted Sanders’ fracking column. promoted Katherine Restrepo’s new report on Medicaid reform, Stoops’ assessment of a new report on public charter schools’ “bang for the buck,” and Stoops’ column on the political nature of some recent education research from the University of North Carolina system. The N.C. Spin website and N.C. Senate Republicans cited the column on politicized research.
