The North Carolina General Assembly has had a busy season, and one of the biggest issues of importance has been education. Teacher pay, teacher tenure, the Common Core, rules about charter schools, have all been topics of concern for our state legislature. Closer to home, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is getting ready for the beginning of the school year, dealing with budget, hiring and moving around principals and educators in the system, and all the while facing uncertainty because of what’s happening in Raleigh. We’re joined by two education reporters to get an update on education in our state.
