The NC Tribune has a good write up of what happened yesterday with House Bill 464, which as filed had to do with the composition of the Washington-Warren Airport Authority. A committee substitute, according to the Tribune, “added a provision authorizing the Beaufort County school system to ‘use the Hillsdale College K-12 Curriculum’ in lieu of the state’s standard course of study, without review or approval by the State Board of Education.” Hillsdale College, according to the Tribune, is private with a “decidedly conservative bent.” The Tribune is reporting that “the chairman of the Beaufort school board, T.W. Allen, said Friday his board has made no such request.” Check out the NC Tribune here.
