Job Creators Network Slams North Carolina Governor For Putting Teachers Union Interests Ahead of Kids

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement on North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper declaring a state of emergency to try to block school choice in his state:

“Gov. Cooper is putting politics over what’s best for his people, including ordinary kids trapped in failing district schools that have long been unable to teach basic math and reading skills. All children deserve to choose the best school for them, regardless of zip code. North Carolina legislators are pursuing legislation to make this principle a reality and give every child in the state the opportunity to learn. Yet Gov. Cooper wants to put teachers union interests ahead of North Carolina’s children. This political stunt reveals once again where school choice opponents’ true allegiance really lies.”
