Having followed the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board public education in North Carolina closely I know that James has the best, most comprehensive understanding of the complex and challenging issues facing Public Education today. I urge everyone to view his detailed platform that addresses all key issues and demonstrates his superior level of understanding. He is immersed in the issues and wholly engaged in accomplishing the goal of getting all public schools to work towards a constitutional mandate that would dramatically improve public education in North Carolina. He’s very intelligent, and brings an unmatched, wholehearted, strong approach to advocating for public school needs and funding. His competence and presence will demand respect in working with the General Assembly. Please, let’s not miss the opportunity to elect the best candidate for State Superintendent.
