Here is Gov. Perdue's statement on the General Assembly's mandate to close one of three residential schools for the deaf and blind:

"The Republican budget is full of extreme, short-sighted and unnecessary cuts to education. It's hard to understand in North Carolina why the General Assembly pitted deaf children against blind children in a fight to keep their school open.

North Carolina must find ways to reduce spending, but our future demands that we also make investments in our people.

Our constitution guarantees a quality education for all, and that includes deaf and blind children."
