The second Partner meeting of the year was held on May 17th, and continued the trend of the ‘Lunch and Learn’ style meeting that the Partnership have expressed an interest in keeping around. James Ford, Charlottean of the Year (2014), spoke on the current education system, what makes him so passionate, and what individuals can do to best be involved and support North Carolina schools.
James shared the difference between equity and equality among services provided to those in our community, and explained why there is a need for a new model of education in North Carolina. The Partnership was thankful to have him as a part of our meeting time!
