On April 16, the annual Women’s Empowerment event brought thousands of women together from all across the Triangle and beyond. And while speakers inside the arena had messages to share, there was important information being shared in the hallways, as well. That included the group Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina, another event sponsor, who was there in part to let parents know about a new app that could help with learning about finding the best options for schooling for children.
“One of the things we find is that people are not aware of the options they have for K-12. So we just want to make sure that we spread the word,” PEFNC President Darrell Allison said. “We launched an app where all they have to do is type in their zip code, and not only will they get an idea of the traditional schools that they’re zoned to, but they’ll also find a 5 to 10-mile radius public charter schools as well as private schools with scholarships.”
