A friend and fellow Democrat recently shared an article comparing the student achievement at one of the downtown charter schools to Snipes, Freeman and Gregory Elementary Schools.
As an educator with certification in school and district administrative levels, I am well versed at looking at and desegregating the data presented to get a clear picture of what can be very confusing numbers.
I am currently looking at the statistics of those schools and schools with similar achievement statistics across the county and develop a strategy the board can employ to help those schools improve their statistics.
Every child in New Hanover County deserves an equal opportunity to be successful both in and out of the classroom. I am committed to ensuring that opportunity.
