Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, private and charter schools don’t have much of a history of working together. But CMS Superintendent Heath Morrison wants that to change.
A few weeks ago, Charlotte Catholic High School principal Jerry Healy got an invitation from CMS. The district wanted to meet with private and charter schools to talk about ways to collaborate. He was surprised.
“The agendas don’t seem to really match and in the past we’ve probably been looked on as the adversary, the people that are pulling our kids away,” says Healy.
