Special Needs Students One Step Closer to School Choice in North Carolina

We'd like to applaud the North Carolina Senate for passing House Bill 269, which would create a program to provide children with disabilities with access to the education of their parents’ choice.
House Bill 269, also known as Children with Disabilities Scholarship Grants, heads back to the North Carolina House for a final vote before heading to the governor’s desk. If passed, the bill would provide grants of up to $6,000 to children with disabilities to cover private school tuition and related special education services.

Access to a quality education is a right of all students. We are glad to see the North Carolina Senate took the steps necessary to pass this bill, and to work with the House to ensure special needs students can receive the best education to fit their unique needs.
