Perspective | Education Matters: Safely starting the 2020-21 school year

As North Carolina continues to develop plans for safely beginning the 2020-21 school year, we take a look at the possibilities surrounding what next year could bring and what that means for both large and small school districts across our state. Joining us are Cyndy Bliss, principal of Myrtle Grove Middle School in New Hanover County, Dr. Barry Williams, superintendent of Gates County Public Schools, and Cathy Moore, superintendent of Wake County Public Schools.

Public School Forum of North Carolina

Since 1986, the Public School Forum of North Carolina has been an indispensable and nonpartisan champion of better schools and the most trusted source in the state for research and analysis on vital education issues. We bring together leaders from business, education, and government to study education issues, develop ideas, seek consensus, and ultimately inform and shape education policy. We do that through research, policy work, innovative programs, advocacy, and continuing education for educators and policymakers.
