Ed forum poster

Education will be the focus of a forum held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Pitt Center in Southern Shores. Presenters will share the present concerns and how the public can help meet the challenges.

Speakers will be NC School Boards Association Government Relations Director Leanne Winner and Hyde County Schools Superintendent Randolph Latimore, Phd. Each will offer unique perspectives about education in North Carolina and be available to answer questions.
Although underwritten by the Dare County Democratic Party, all forum presentations are nonpartisan and the public is encouraged to attend. No cost and no advance registration required.
“One common-ground issue that everyone – no matter what their political persuasion – can agree on is the importance of education,” said Dare County Democratic Party Chairman Fountain Odom. “We need to learn the facts and not depend on rogue websites or Facebook for information. The best way to do that is to hear what the experts have to say.”
“Right now, we hold the next generation’s fate in our hands and much of our future will be decided by them – let’s make sure that they are prepared for that responsibility. And we have to be cognizant of the trials and tribulations that face our neighboring counties because they provide much of the workforce for Dare County.”
The last forums focusing on the economy and environment are set for December and details will be announced in the near future.
