SOE researcher Robert Balfanz was one of the headline members of a panel discussion in North Carolina on Monday that discussed the future and vitality of the city of Charlotte, joined by former N.C. Gov. Jim Hunt, Charlotte board of Ed Chair Ericka Ellis-Stewart and Superintendent Heath Morrison.
The discussion, which took place at central Piedmont Community College, was hosted by the Democratic National Convention host committee and was the third in a series of public talks highlighting pathways to success.
Balfanz highlighted the need for the health of public schools and that they would shape the vitality of the city, indicating that it would take a united effort from many groups – government, school, families – to get more students “on the pathway to Adult Success”.
