The Governor’s new budget proposes to move the Department of Non-Public Schools under his office’s purview.

It is not a coincidence that the Governor is also trying to convert the Superintendent of North Carolina schools into a cabinet appointed position. Sen. Jerry Tillman proposed this back in 2013 and appears to still be driving that effort with SB 94.
Nor is it coincidence that certain legislators at the NC General Assembly are trying to make that position a member of the State Board of Education via HB 202.
Data drives the money flow.
Consolidation drives control.
Control will rest in the Governor’s mansion.
