Review Indicates NC Could Soon Have Nation’s Most Extensive Voucher Program
Posted on 7/2/2013 by Lindsay Wagner
As North Carolina inches toward becoming the 13th state in the nation to have a school voucher program, the Tar Heel state has had some company this spring in its “race to the voucher.” Texas, Wisconsin and New Jersey each considered statewide voucher programs during this year’s legislative sessions. None of these proposals, however, compare in scope to what North Carolina lawmakers are currently considering. Moreover, if North Carolina lawmakers do, in fact, pass the proposals currently pending, North Carolina would soon be home to one of the most – if not the most – extensive voucher programs in the nation.
