Gennell Curry is a mother of four. Curry started all of her children in public school, but after she became dissatisfied with the education and treatment her children were receiving, she transferred them to private schools in Durham, and then to Christian Faith Center Academy (CFC Academy) when they moved to Creedmoor. Due to a change in financial circumstances, she was forced to move her three younger children back to public school. She hopes to send her two sons back to CFC Academy with the help of the program.
Through the Opportunity Scholarship Program, North Carolina is giving low-income families the same educational choices that wealthier families already enjoy.
