Covenant for NC's Children Education Work Group

NASW-NC attended the Covenant for NC's Children Education Work Group today at NCAE. The group went over a proposed legislative agenda for the work group. Issues identifed of high priority are explictly endorsing HB 1366- School Violence Protection (bullying bill), corporal punishment in public schools, and suspension issues. Members of the group also mentioned working towards collecting data relevant to drop-out rates and suspension, and including Title V (absinence until marriage-only) in the proposed agenda.
The final agenda will be posted once approved by the Covenant.

In this post we refer to the "ban of corporal punishment" in public schools, not an endorsement of the practice.
