Support the use of best practices to reduce our dropout rate and increase our graduate rate. Advocate for equitable funding for rural school districts, emphasizing teacher recruitment and retention. Make all decisions within the NC School Board Code of Ethics.
Discrimination can occur for many reasons. All policies should be fair and equitable for all students. Training should be provided to school personnel to ensure implementation in non-discriminatory manners.
A lot of training is needed prior to allowing educators who want to be armed in schools to do so.
