A Must Read: Kris Nordstrom’s “The Unraveling—Poorly-crafted Education Policies Are Failing North Carolina’s Children”

There are a few people who, when they write about public education, I automatically read.

And I read Kris Nordstrom’s work. A former research and policy analyst for the North Carolina General Assembly, Norstrom now is an analyst for the Education & Law Project for the North Carolina Justice System.

His eyes see public education in North Carolina with as clear a lens as anyone, his ability to explain fact from fiction is unparalleled, and his willingness to confront lawmakers on the issues is admirable.

This recent report is simply devastatingly clear and candid. Anyone with a stake in public education should read: http://www.ncjustice.org/?q=education/education-policy-perspectives-unraveling%E2%80%94poorly-crafted-education-policies-are-failing.
