RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Across the country this week, thousands are showing their support for more choices for students where they will attend school.
That includes here in Raleigh where more than a hundred people rallied for school choice at the North Carolina Museum of History.
“I just think charter school was a better fit for my children,” said Yvette Wynne, a parent from Martin County who attended the rally.
“What is best for students is the opportunity for parents to choose the best education option for their children,” said Rhonda Dillingham, Executive Director, North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools. “Children don’t all learn the same. We need opportunities for students who are interested in the arts to be able to go to an arts-themed school. We need students who are interested in a STEM focus to be able to go to a STEM-focused school.”
