Halifax: Mergers, strife, and academic improvement

At EdNC, we value public service. We want citizens across the state to run for school board and to do the hard work of making sure all of our students have access to a high-quality education.

We highlight school boards that work well and schools boards that do not – hoping to raise the bar for school board leadership statewide.

In this series, we are taking a closer look at a number of issues affecting Halifax, including a lawsuit filed to merge the three school districts in Halifax County, the intervention in Halifax Public Schools by the State Board of Education, and the activities of the Halifax Board of Education.
