July 10 Breakfast on Education in NC

Do you remember the Aesop Fable about the Alligator and the Frog? The frog wanted to find a way across the river but was terrified of the river snakes.  Then along came an alligator who offered him a ride on his tail and convinced the frog his intentions were good.  The frog hesitated, but eventually went along with the alligator. 
 
We all know what happened to the frog.

In this case, the frog is the North Carolina School System, now on the back of an alligator, Senator Phil Berger.

On Saturday, July 10th, Dr. Jen Mangrum will discuss the fate of North Carolina’s public schools under the leadership of NC’s most powerful alligator.  Understanding the plan can help us change the outcome for our students, families, and communities. 

You can register for the event here.

If you can’t attend but want to donate to your local Democratic Party, you can do that here.
 
Dr. Jen Mangrum is a former elementary classroom teacher for over a decade and is currently an Associate Professor at UNC-Greensboro where she teaches, advises and coordinates teacher education programs.
 
In 2018, Jen ran for NC Senate against Senator Phil Berger and in 2020, Jen was the Democratic nominee for NC State Superintendent of Public Instruction. She is a champion for public schools and calls for a great teacher in every classroom, a great principal in every school and proper funding for public schools to meet the needs of North Carolina’s diverse population.
