NC General Assembly Democrat Rick Glazier criticized Opportunity Scholarships:
“Glazier argued that the opportunity scholarship program is a danger to the integrity of the nation’s public school system.
“Public schools are the only institution in the nation that bonds our people together under one flag,” he said. “There is an inordinate cost to society when that is broken up that you can’t calculate easily.””
