Improving Education

North Carolina’s education chief points to gains in the state’s graduation rate, now above 80%, as a sign of achievement in┬ápublic schools. The increase in the number of students earning a high school diploma comes as the schools encounter more economically-challenged families and parents who are not always engaged in their child’s education. On this program, N.C. State Superintendent of Education Dr. June Atkinson addresses parental involvement, state budget cuts in education, and the need to identify a path for all students beyond high school before they graduate.
