Advocacy, priorities, equity, absenteeism, and more

The North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools is holding charter school advocacy day from 10am-2pm today. According to the association’s website, charter school teachers, administrators, board members, parents, and students are invited to “help us create a more purposeful voice against reinstating the charter school cap in our state.” Here is more information. EdNC’s Rupen Fofaria will be there to cover a press conference we expect to be held at 10am in support of the cap, and also the association’s advocacy day. Weigh in on Twitter at #nced.
