It focuses on the path to privatization currently being pushed by big money and for-profit education. The NCGA has certainly embraced this scheme as you’ll see outlined throughout this toolkit. Fundamentally what we have here is a difference of beliefs – free market vs constitutionally provided education regardless of your status.
