The General Assembly passed many of the new laws last week at the very end of the legislative session. So every day this week, WFAE is examining some of the major changes. We've covered gun legislation and abortion regulations so far. This morning we focus on education.</p><p>There were a lot of new education changes that passed either in bills or through the budget. That includes getting rid of teacher tenure and including money for vouchers for kids to attend private schools. But some of those changes shouldn't be a surprise.</p><p> Wed, 31 Jul 2013 13:14:24 +0000 Michael Tomsic, Lisa Miller & Marshall Terry 32361 at http://wfae.org NC Explainer: Education Changes
