1) Increase funding for traditional public schools with supplemental support for low wealth schools. 2) Provide broadband to rural NC to give access to economic, educational, and healthcare opportunities.
The NCGA should take the lead in raising minimum wages whereas the state employs many workers. I believe this would create a climate for businesses to want to follow.
There should be a nonpartisan committee set up to do so that should include legislators equally, community leaders, educators, and various aged community members.
1) Increase access to Pre-K education for all students. 2) Implement additional K-12 paths to career readiness.
Yes, because municipalities hire, train, and evaluate staff and should therefore control their accountability.
We should not participate in off-shore drilling. Alternate energy should be developed to meet our needs.
