Republican members of the North Carolina Senate recently introduced an education bill that bears the distinctive stamp of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
PAA affiliate MecklenburgACTS has taken a leading role in publicizing the origins and the implications of the bill, as in this story broadcast by Charlotte’s NPR affiliate, WFAE.
In it, PAA co-founder Pamela Grundy says of the bill: “It’s not tailored to North Carolina, it doesn’t arise out of the concerns of North Carolinians. In fact, I think it goes counter to what a lot of North Carolinians would like to see in their schools and yet it ends up introduced in the state legislature.
