Sen. Eddie Goodall, who represents the Mint Hill area in Raleigh, helped craft a last minute amendment to the state budget that will could bring millions of dollars to charter schools for things like classroom supplies. The amendment in the budget would give counties the authority to transfer lottery proceeds to charter schools—about $50,000 per charter school. Said Goodall:

“I don’t know who would intentionally exclude charter school children and schools and parents from those resources and I don’t know why they would do that.  I hope it was an oversight.”
