Earlier this year the General Assembly approved a new program for special needs families called Personal Education Savings Accounts (PESA). The program provides parents of eligible children with up to $9,000 to be used for a child’s educational expenditures.
If you’re interested in learning more about the PESA program, you’ll want to attend one of three public information sessions scheduled for November 9th (Wilmington), November 16th (High Point) and November 20th (Raleigh). The public will have an opportunity to ask questions, hear from local lawmakers as well as representatives of Parents for Educational Freedom North Carolina, the Civitas Institute, North Carolina’s special needs community and the State Education Assistance Authority.

Some credentials these two have with a wink and a nod.
