Imagine the anxiety of a parent who watches their child struggle in school. Maybe it’s a learning disability. Perhaps a physical challenge is an issue. Or maybe, despite the best efforts of the child to fit in with the other kids, the traditional classroom simply isn’t working for them. Should a parent be forced to watch their child struggle? We say no. We don’t want parents to feel they have nowhere to turn, and we don’t want kids and families to face unnecessary distress. That’s why JLF supports giving parents options. In North Carolina, many state lawmakers agree with us, and they’ve taken action in several ways, as JLF’s Terry Stoops explains. Take a moment to watch and find out why North Carolina parents have hope and support.
