Stand Up for Public Schools
PENC has recently signed a resolution to support NCASA's campaign to build support and respect for public schools in North Carolina. It is NCASA’s goal to have every school and every district working together to build support and respect for public schools in North Carolina, telling their stories of success and engaging their communities in support and letting our legislators know that public schools matter. We encourage you to explore www.EveryChildsChanceNC.org, and to consider how this campaign might benefit your community, and to get involved.
