May 19th Meeting

Our May Speaker


Our speaker is Lynn Edmonds, Outreach Director for Public Schools First NC and Great Schools in Wake. She has worked in public education advocacy for 10 years, first as a volunteer and then with Public Schools First NC beginning in 2013. Lynn graduated with an associate’s degree from Peace College (now William Peace University in Raleigh). She has served on multiple PTA and civic boards, including her current, at-large position on the Wake County Board of Library Commissioners. A native North Carolinian, Lynn and her husband attended and graduated from Durham Public Schools. They have two children who both graduated from Wake County public schools. We are eager to hear Lynn’s perspective on the current state of affairs of our public schools. Here are a few questions to get the conversation started:
· How are grades, especially exams being handled for 2020?
· What factors go into planning for the fall in Wake County Schools?
· With unequal access to the Internet, isn’t online education an unfair delivery system?
· What other challenges are teachers and administrators are coping with?
· What difference (if any) is made for the future in Wake County by the (December 2019)
Leandro Report and the (April 2020) state and system responses?
