We need to get back to REAL education in this country.

K-12 Action Team

Educate the community to the new Common Core standards for students http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/curriculum/ Increase parental involvement http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/docs/parents/toolkit/guide.pdf . Enhance teacher recruitment and retention efforts http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/docs/intern-research/reports/incentives-trr.pdf .
