STATE SUPERINTENDENT JUNE ATKINSON APPLAUDS LOCAL SUPERINTENDENTS' GUIDE TO STRENGTHENING PUBLIC SCHOOLS

The following statement is from State Superintendent June Atkinson regarding the North Carolina School Superintendents Association’s new North Carolina Guide to Strengthening Our Public Schools (pdf, 344kb).

“Local school superintendents in North Carolina made history this week when they stood united to unveil their vision and leadership document on how North Carolina can strengthen its public schools. I applaud this leadership and support the identified focus areas, especially related to prepared graduates, digital learning, human capital and funding our public schools at a higher level. While every school district has its own unique challenges and strengths, all public schools stand to benefit when educators stand together on behalf of the 1.5 million public school students in our state.”
