I've been looking through the state's Education budget.
Does anyone know anything about:
God's Vision Ministries, Inc., P.O. Box 428, Louisburg, NC, 27549
No? Well your taxes are paying them $18,000 for something to do with education. I couldn't even find a link online.
Likewise, $25,000 to the Durham Nativity School, which sounds like a great idea, but is also a religious institute.
The Judy Memorial Family Center is also without a website, but they get $10,000. WNC Communities gets $50,000, nearly all of which could be accounted for by "awards" they give to other organizations like BIG COVE with the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, BIG IVY in Buncombe County, CENTER in Madison County, and REVERE - RICE COVE in Madison County. What these groups have to do with education is not immediately apparent.
