School Choice Week has an unexpected new supporter in North Carolina — Gov. Roy Cooper. For the first time during his tenure, Cooper has issued a proclamation declaring Sunday through Jan. 29 as “North Carolina School Choice Week.” The proclamation is a surprise, considering Cooper’s opposition to the state’s private school voucher program and his concerns about expansion of charter schools. “The NC Association for Public Charter Schools requested this proclamation and we honored that request,” Jordan Monaghan, a spokesperson for Cooper’s office, said in an email. “Over the past two years, educators at all levels have responded to unprecedented challenges with grace, flexibility and determination.


“We must do more particularly to support our public schools and owe all educators our thanks and recognition.” It’s a victory for school choice groups who’ve been promoting alternatives to traditional public schools.
