An editorial from the Charlotte Observer discusses recent legislation designed to break through barriers that keep children in foster care from participating fully in school sports and other activities.
…some foster children sit on the sidelines while other children play and travel and learn.
All that’s apparently about to change, thanks to Senate Bill 423, which sailed through the N.C. Senate on a 48-0 vote earlier this week. A companion bill passed the House 116-0.
As you might guess from the vote totals, this is smart, long overdue legislation.
