Stewards of Privilege

No Opportunity Scholarship?

Bradford Academy, along with several other independent private schools in North Carolina, have opted out of the voluntary participation in the state’s OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP program.  In essence, the state has said, “Here is some money to help out some needy families.”  We replied, “No thanks.”  Why?
