RALEIGH — The North Carolina Dept. of Public Instruction has so much money floating around that the agency recently awarded Rebuilding Broken Places Community Development Corporation, a grant in the sum of $338,000.

The group is led William Barber, who also serves as Director of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP.

The funds have been designated for a newly created after school program, which touts itself as being “faith based.” Yet, Barber’s followers repeatedly slam North Carolina’s recent school voucher program, because it allows private schools that have a clear religious agenda to receive state tax dollars.


Does anyone see hypocrisy here?

If the Dept. of Public Instruction has so much excess money that they can spend it in the form of grants, for anyone, perhaps they should concentrate on spending this money on educating our children?
