Education Matters – Setting an agenda for education

Topic: Setting an agenda for education

A new commission created last year – My Future NC – wants to develop a broad-based education agenda for North Carolina aimed at making the state more competitive. The cross-sector group representing business, education, government, nonprofits and philanthropy plans to craft key goals for the state, along with policy proposals on how to achieve them. This week we’re joined by one of the My Future NC co-chairs as well as Commission’s Executive Director to talk about what they’ve learned so far and what comes next.
