Presented by AT&T
The state of education in Charlotte is at a crucial juncture right now. The public school system is looking for a new leader and also deciding on how it wants to assign students to schools going forward.
There’s nobody better to talk about why this matters and what we should do about it than James Ford. He was named the state’s top teacher for his work at Garinger High and is now working on bridging divides in education across North Carolina.
Join us for the Agenda’s second event in the CA Live speaker series and hear his take on the importance of education beyond the schoolhouse.
