Explored what 23 -29 year olds care about, how they live their lives, what their dreams, goals, aspirations are. The League especially wanted to know what political issues are of importance to this group. The Duke students presented their project results to the League members on April 23. Project Report Summary.
In addition, both teams reviewed League marketing materials, the LWVODC website and facebook page to suggest methods of enhancing our communications to these age groups. Logistics:
The concept of charter schools as presently constituted started in the 1990's. Forty-one states and the District of Columbia currently have charter schools. The impetus for these schools included flexibility, de-centralization and opportunities for innovation. He warned that state requirements vary so much that it is difficult to compare schools in different states.
The League has no position on charter schools, but the LWVUS has a position on privatization. Although charter schools are public non-profit institutions, they may contract with for-profit management companies. North Carolina has about 108 charter schools and an estimated 15% of these have contracted with for-profit management.
At the close of the meeting persons interested in forming a study group were asked to stay and provide their contact information. This group will have its first meeting on December 11 at 9 a.m. at Straw Valley Café at New Hope Commons.
- Vision of Public Education in NC: A Great Public Education for a Great State. On Oct. 4, 2012 the North Carolina State Board of Education adopted the "Vision of Public Education in North Carolina: A Great Public Education System for a Great State" to guide their work. The vision statement and the accompanying 10-page paper is the culmination of work that began at the State Board of Education planning session held in August 2011 in which Board members discussed the need to shift the conversation about public education in North Carolina.
The League of Women Voters of Wake County has asked ODC Leaguers to assist them in voter registration of new citizens at the naturalization ceremony held every Friday at 10 am and a second one at 2 pm. The USCIS facility is on the edge of the Wake-Durham County lines off of Miami Blvd. at 301 Roycroft Drive, Durham, NC 27703. Packages with voter registration forms are provided by USCIS. Volunteers assist new citizens in completing the forms and collecting them. Betty Ellerbee from LWV-Wake will have a Wake Leaguer assist in the afternoon session to collect the forms and return them to the NC Board of Elections in Raleigh within the 7-day period as required by law.
