Part Two: Business Leaders & Education

Growing the Knowledge Economy in the Carolinas will require a well-qualified workforce and better alignment of priorities among industry leaders and educators. C-suite executives from both North and South Carolina have built coalitions to help change education policy in both states in an effort to address both the region’s skills gap and student achievement. On the second of a two-part discussion with those involved in this transformation,  Mike Brenan of BB&T, Pamela Lackey of AT&T South Carolina, Walter McDowell of BEST NC and Anna Nelson of Spangler Companies explain their policy priorities, as well as the critical role that philanthropy has in changing education outcomes.
