For the past 10 years, North Carolina lawmakers have been adopting a series of misguided policies — policies that prioritize austerity budgets and “choice” programs, and de-prioritize teachers and students.


Based on the feedback captured by advocates throughout 2018, our team developed a comprehensive policy and funding agenda to guide our advocacy efforts throughout the 2019 legislative session. Effective and Equitable: Creating a Shared Vision for NC Schools represents our collective vision for what is possible and necessary in order to restore, improve, and transform North Carolina’s public education system.

This online version of the policy agenda aims to serve as a living version of the April 2019 report, allowing:

  • Ongoing feedback and policy recommendations from readers like you
  • The ability to quickly reference and share information on specific topics
  • Updates to policy recommendations and cost estimates when applicable
