We need legislative solutions that will change and improve the way our schools are graded and funded and the way testing is conducted. Another priority is child safety and decisions and legislation related to the foster care system.
Yes, but this needs to be done strategically and in a way that is sustainable for everyone and plans for the future.
We need to utilize an independent redistricting commission.
Changes to school grading and EOGs including coordinating DPI offices to ensure that test elements reflect required educational standards; Adequate investment in schools including infrastructure, resources, teachers, & other staff
In general, we need to give local municipalities back some of the powers the NCGA has taken from them.
For economic, environmental, safety, and other reasons, I do not believe we should drill off of NC's coast.
