New Law Eliminates NC Charter Schools Cap

Governor Beverly Perdue says a bill she signed into law eliminating the 100-school limit on charter schools will provide more public school choices.

The governor signed the bill Friday which was finalized last week by the general assembly to end the cap. Republicans made eliminating the cap a top priority during this year's legislative session. The bipartisan compromise bill passed by wide margins. The cap had been in place since the mid-1990s.
