NC Governor Declares ‘STATE OF EMERGENCY’ Due To GOP School Voucher Expansion, Tax Cuts


According to an official statement from the Governor’s office, Governor Roy Cooper has declared a state of emergency for public education in North Carolina.

In a video address on Monday, Governor Cooper raised concerns about proposed legislation in the NC general assembly, which he believes would have detrimental effects on the state’s public education system.

Highlighting the potential consequences, Governor Cooper expressed worries that the proposed legislation, spearheaded by the GOP, could result in a loss of millions of dollars for public schools, exacerbate the existing teacher shortage in the state, and introduce unnecessary “political culture wars” into the classroom.

“It’s clear that the Republican legislature is aiming to choke the life out of public education. I’m declaring this a state of emergency because you need to know what’s happening. If you care about public schools in North Carolina, it’s time to take immediate action and tell them to stop the damage that will set back our schools for a generation,” said Governor Cooper.

Governor Cooper urged citizens of North Carolina to reach out to their legislators, emphasizing the importance of voicing their concerns and opposing the legislation in question.
