RALEIGH, NC (September 1, 2022)- The Public School Forum of North Carolina has released the 2022 North Carolina Education Policy Primer, which serves as a fact-based guide to public education in North Carolina. The Primer provides a comprehensive overview of how education policy is made, along with the current state of public education and the policies guiding it. The Forum produces this guide in order to inform current policymakers, candidates for public office, and voters.
Education policy involves a wide range of interconnected issues such as school finance and facilities, accountability and assessment, technology, teachers and so much more. In order to make well-informed and evidence-based decisions, policymakers and voters face the challenge of understanding complex educational issues.
To further aid that understanding The Forum will be hosting a Public Education Policy Primer Session virtually on October 12, 2022 at 3 pm. Registration for that event is now open. All North Carolina citizens are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The Forum will also hold its biennial Candidate Education Policy primer sessions virtually in September 2022, with more than 200 candidates for public office attending, including those running for the NC General Assembly, boards of county commissions, and local boards of education.
