    Dr. Grant Hayes, dean of East Carolina University's College of Education, has been elected to the board of directors of the Public School Forum of North Carolina. His two-year term began July 1.

    The organization's mission is to "shape a world-class public school education that supports all children in reaching their full potential and drives a vibrant North Carolina economy," according to the Forum's website at www.ncforum.org.

    Established 30 years ago, the Forum has launched several programs including the Beginning Teacher Network, Education Policy Fellowship Program, Teaching Fellows Program and the NC Center for Afterschool Programs.

    "The Forum is composed of an impressive and well-rounded group of individuals who are working hard to advance and improve North Carolina's public schools through research, policy and advocacy," said Hayes. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this work."

    Each year, the organization chooses 10 education issues to address; the 2016 list is below:

  • Direct adequate resources to public schools, teachers and leaders
  • Transform the profession to make North Carolina a teaching destination again
  • Emphasize quality, not quantity, in charter school growth
  • Elevate race as a focal point of public education
  • Fix the broken A-F grading system
  • Support the state's struggling schools
  • Maintain high standards for North Carolina
  • Make evidence-based decisions on expansion of private school vouchers
  • Expand access to high quality early childhood education
  • Build bridges for students through expanded learning.

    To follow or join conversations, the Forum can be found on Twitter at #EdTalksNC, on Facebook and at www.edtalks.ncforum.org/.
