The last decade in North Carolina has been one of much-needed advances for parents looking for a fair shake for their children — a school and/or environment that works for THEM, not for the status-quo system. And now, as National School Choice Week nears, the John Locke Foundation invites you to a very special breakfast to discuss choice and options, and where North Carolina goes from here. We hope you’ll join us.

As American’s largest annual celebration of educational opportunity, National School Choice Week (January 25-31) illustrates the inclusiveness and diversity of the school choice movement. In honor of this week, the John Locke Foundation is hosting a breakfast event highlighting all types of education options for families.
Mr. Bob Bowdon, Founder of Choice Media, and Director of the documentary film, “The Ticket: The Many Faces of School Choice” will give his view from a national perspective. Representative Paul (Skip) Stam, Pro Temper of the North Carolina House of Representatives, will share a view from the General Assembly. Dr. Michael Fedewa, Superintendent of Schools for the Raleigh Diocese, will provide us with a perspective on working with the families currently receiving a North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship. Mrs. Jeannie Metcalfe Vice Chair of the Winston Salem/Forsyth County School Board, will share their District’s choice plan for traditional public school families.
Charter schools, home schools, and virtual schools, will be highlighted. A screening of the documentary, “The Ticket: The Many Faces of School Choice,” will also be included in this timely program. The film focuses on different forms of school choice while traveling on a whistle stop train tour across America.
