Making the Work Possible
The North Carolina State Board of Education and Office of the Governor, in partnership with former state superintendent Mike Ward and local school districts, launched the North Carolina Education Corps to accelerate learning recovery. The Mebane Foundation, C.D.Spangler Foundation and SECU Foundation provided essential early investments to ensure the success of this critical effort.
