AUW of North Carolina invites you to attend the virtual speaker event, “Public Education in NC: Legislative Update & the Leandro Case”. This is the eighth program of our virtual series, You Have the Power.
North Carolina’s general assembly has been busy this session, filing bills that have great impact on public education. Join us for a legislative update and discussion about public school funding. Our conversation will include updates on the Leandro court case and what North Carolinians must do to ensure all children receive a sound, basic education as promised in our state constitution.
