The Public School Forum was featured in the News Observer for its work on educational opportunity:
The Public School Forum of North Carolina has put out the call for volunteers to join a study group focused on finding what it will take to provide every child in the state an opportunity at a sound basic education.
Within that broad question the group will concentrate on three topics: racial equity, school funding, and the impacts of traumatic childhood experiences on learning.
“We have the statewide breadth to really bring together disparate groups over what can be volatile issues,” said Forum President and CEO Keith Poston.
This is the 16th study group the Raleigh-based education think-tank has convened in its 29-year history. Poston said the group will begin meeting within the next 30 days, with the aim of having recommendations ready in time for the legislative session next spring.
