WRAL.com reports on some of the fresh, innovative thinking coming from the latest meeting of North Carolina’s Education Cabinet.
“If we get everyone working on the same page and we raise our standards and we do the assessment piece and we align these courses, that to me will certainly put us in a different league,” said Howard Lee, executive director of the Education Cabinet and former Board of Education chairman.
Education officials said the entire system must have consistent standards, goals and technology, from pre-kindergarten through graduate school. Bowles said he plans to take immediate action at the university level.
Ah yes, nothing like further calcifying a rigid, top-down one size fits all bureacracy to breed innovation and efficiency.
