Education talk is the subject of the (probable) last installment of soundbites from the editorial board meeting with Gov. Beverly Perdue this month. Perdue lamented coming cuts in the state's education budget and talked of one program she will never cut: early college credits for high school students. She also talked of her decision to shift the power in the state's education hierarchy from the elected superintendent of public instruction (June Atkinson) to her appointed CEO and board chairman (Bill Harrison).
Perdue on education cuts - and cutthroat moves?
