From Carolina Journal Radio Program No. 735: One of North Carolina’s most vocal advocates for public charter schools is taking a more direct interest in the topic. Terry Stoops, the John Locke Foundation’s vice president for research, is married to a public school teacher who just won approval to open the new Carolina Charter Academy in Wake County in 2018. Stoops describes the process his wife pursued to start the school. He also explains how CCA will offer an alternative to traditional school options in one of the fastest-growing parts of the state.
