State Board of Education Chairman Opposes HB 17bladenonline 12/15/2016 0 COMMENTS
“The State Board of Education and State Superintendent have a strong and productive relationship that works well on behalf of public schools and charter schools in North Carolina. HB 17 An Act to Clarify the State Superintendent’s Role… raises Constitutional concerns and eliminates checks and balances that are important to the students of North Carolina.
“For these reasons, State Board of Education Vice-Chair A.L. “Buddy” Collins and I oppose HB 17. The bill is not in the best interest of public schools and public charter schools in North Carolina.”
