Eric Guckian and James Ford talk education

Gov. Pat McCrory singled out many people for recognition during his state-of-the-state speech, but two of them stand out when it comes to the topic of education. Eric Guckian is the governor’s senior education advisor, and James Ford is North Carolina’s Teacher of the Year and a teacher at Garinger High School in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System. We sat down with them prior to the state-of-the-state speech to talk about the state of our schools.
