We envision a future in which the NC education system will ensure…

  • Children are ready to learn when they enter school,
  • Excellent educators are cultivated, supported, and retained,
  • Students master basic skills on time and reach proficiency,
  • Students are prepared for high school,
  • Students are prepared to succeed in college and/or work, and
  • Students graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in North Carolina’s job market.

Good simply is not good enough for North Carolina. Now is the time to raise expectations and work together to make our state’s education system the best in the nation. When we do, every student will be ready to succeed in school, work and life and North Carolina will have the educated citizens needed to grow and prosper.
