The North Carolina Leadership Forum (NCLF) is a program of Duke University. Established in 2015, NCLF seeks to create constructive engagement between North Carolina policy, business, and nonprofit leaders across party lines, ideologies, professional experiences, and regional perspectives.
The 2019 North Carolina Leadership Forum addressed an important topic for the future of education: What role should choice play in North Carolina elementary and secondary education, and what array of educational options should the state fund in order to provide a quality education for every child?
Across the political spectrum there is a divergence of opinion about the nature of the problem, the underlying values relevant to choice in education, the prioritization of those values, the potential options the state should pursue, and the best solutions to the challenges we face.
