On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, the Public School Forum hosted our 6th Annual Eggs and Issues Breakfast. This event included the release of the Public School Forum’s Top Education Issues for 2020 and a special taping of our weekly TV show “Education Matters” featuring a panel of education supporters and leaders. Each year the Forum features the Top Education Issues facing North Carolina that we believe will drive policy debate during the upcoming legislative session.
