Eggs & Issues Breakfast

Each year, The Public School Forum gathers hundreds of business, education, and government leaders in Raleigh to talk about the most pressing education issues facing North Carolina that will drive policy debate during the upcoming legislative session. The annual Eggs & Issues Breakfast also debuts the Public School Forum’s Top Ten Education Issues for the year. 

On Wednesday, January 23, 2019, the Public School Forum of North Carolina hosted its 5th Annual Eggs & Issues Breakfast at the Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh. This special event began in 2015 to showcase the Forum’s release of its annual Top Ten Education Issues – our unique take on the state’s most pressing issues in education. The 2019 Eggs & Issues Breakfast included a special taping of our weekly TV show “Education Matters” featuring an All-Star panel of students and educators.
