Initial Meeting Notes

February 7, 2017

Goal:

Focus initially on two areas:

Public schools vs. charters and the use of vouchers, focusing on the state legislative and local level (where we get the vast majority of funding).

Affordable/universal early childhood education.

Action Steps:

Group members volunteered to undertake the following tasks:

* Identify websites that address these issues and monitor them on a regular basis.

* Contact Ann Doss Helms at The Charlotte Observer to get her input.

  • Contact the Women’s Impact Fund’s Education Group.
  • Meet again within the next two to four weeks.

To be decided:

* Contact our new Superintendent of Education to get his views.

* Contact UNCC to see learn what information the school can provide and track any programs and information they may have to offer.
