Families – not bureaucrats ― are in control of their children’s education. All North Carolina families are empowered to choose the education that best fits their children’s needs. Further, local school systems need more flexibility in terms of school calendars, and the option to reward excellence with reforming teacher pay.

Eliminate Teacher Salary Schedule
Revise Education Funding Formulas
Universal school choice via ESAs
Reduce restrictions on charter schools
Facilitate Intra/Interdistrict Public School Choice
A fair tax code eliminates political favoritism and encourages jobs and growth.

Eliminate the state corporate income tax
