Speaker Moore Responds to School Reopening Veto Override Vote in the N.C. Senate

Raleigh, N.C. – State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) responded on Monday to an unsuccessful veto override vote on Senate Bill 37 ‘In Person Learning Choice for NC Families’ in the North Carolina Senate.

“A report today revealed over half of North Carolina high school students failed end-of-course tests in the Fall, speaking volumes about the desperate need to get our young people back into the classroom learning as soon as possible,” Speaker Moore said.
“We are disappointed that students will continue to suffer from elected leaders’ refusal to put their needs first, even as teachers were advanced in the vaccine priority list ahead of cancer patients under 65 to support safe classroom reopenings.”
“The General Assembly leadership is committed to delivering on our state’s constitutional duty to provide education access for families, and will pursue all available avenues to help North Carolina families overcome the massive learning loss forced on them by remote instruction.”
