Catherine Truitt, Republican nominee for Superintendent of Public Instruction and Chancellor of Western Governors University NC, issued the following statement today in response to Governor Cooper’s announcement regarding returning to school this fall: “I am glad that with only 35 days left before school starts the Governor has finally decided to dictate to our local schools how they can reopen.
