About Education Matters
Education Matters aims to provide the public with real facts about the state of public education in North Carolina. The weekly television show explores everything from the history of public education to the impact of legislation and policy decisions on our public schools. The program is hosted by Tom Williams, Board Chairman of the Public School Forum of North Carolina.
“The very issue of education, as well as, the teaching profession, rarely receive the coverage deserved and this show is an attempt to move the issue to the forefront. Our schools, our students, our teachers, our legislators, and communities can all benefit from your efforts. As a retiree as well as fourth generation NC educator I send you my sincerest thanks. Keep up the good work.” -Viewer
