Click the video above to view pictures from the Support our Students event in April 2013 where nearly 3,000 people joined together to voice support for offering more educational opportunities to families.
The North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Act was passed by the General Assembly in July 2013 and will help students who often have the greatest difficulty receiving critical educational resources by allowing them to receive opportunity scholarships up to $4,200 per student to use for private school tuition.
The program is currently suspended due to a court injunction on February 23, 2014. PEFNC and others are working diligently to help ensure this program is once again up and running for the 2014-15 school year.
