UPCOMING Public Conversation: The State Of Public Education

As the new school year gets underway, this community forum will explore the changing climate for public education in the Charlotte region. Panelists will address recent moves to raise teacher pay and discuss the future of student achievement standards and Common Core guidelines. The forum will also examine the role of charter schools, their successes and challenges to date in the Charlotte area, and the outlook for charter programs. Panelists and audience members will explore what parents, teachers and school administrators want and expect from local public schools - and exchange ideas on how to achieve those goals.
