Wake County school board member John Tedesco has landed on his feet as president of the newly formed N.C. Center for Education Reform.
The center announced today that Tedesco would lead the group in its mission to "transform" the state's public schools, which it says "need a revolution." The group says it wants to address areas such as the dropout rate, the school-to-prison pipeline and how many graduates need remediation at community colleges.
“We proudly welcome Mr. John Tedesco to lead our efforts at NCCER as a non-partisan not-for-profit organization committed to producing measurable results for all students in North Carolina,” according to the group’s press release. “His expertise and passion in education, non_profit management and development will serve as a spark to create a powerful transformation of education in North Carolina.”
