PEFNC Launches Statewide Campaign: 'Opening The Door to Opportunity'

    Press Release:

Features Parent Testimonials from Every Region of the State


    RALEIGH - Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina (PEFNC) has launched a statewide video and social media campaign called Opening The Door to Opportunity, which spotlights stories of parents who have applied for the Opportunity Scholarship Program. Unfortunately, because the program is still pending a ruling from the N.C. Supreme Court, these families - along with thousands of others across the state - continue to feel uncertainty about their children's education.

    "With each passing day, children's lives and futures are hanging in the balance. As you will hear in these videos, the underlying similarity of each parent's story weaves a common thread throughout the applicants' accounts: Parents are demanding a better opportunity for their children," said PEFNC President Darrell Allison.

    Below is the story of Katrina from Hope Mills. Her son is thriving at a private school their family was able to afford thanks to an Opportunity Scholarship. She hopes more children will be able to thrive in a school of their choice like her son. In her own words, "I wanted my son to attend a private school because I love the accountability ... and there's more people doing more of the right thing. I see my son putting in more effort in private school."
