Pat McCrory on Education

 


Virtual education choice and charter schools choice

Virtual Education Choice: National studies show virtual learners make larger learning gains and have higher course completion rates. 21st-century technology makes it possible for high school students to choose from a wide range of on-line courses taught by the best public school teachers from across the state.

Teaching and education can no longer be limited to lectures, chalkboards, and brick buildings.

Charter Schools Choice: While lifting the cap on charter schools was a great first step, we must be careful that a slow moving process for approving new charter schools would act as a de facto cap. Therefore, we must address the thousands of families on waiting lists for charter schools in addition to the dozens of charter schools waiting to open.

A McCrory administration will:
