On March 23rd, the North Carolina Association of School Administrators (NCASA) hosted a celebration of the 175th anniversary of the opening of North Carolina’s first public school. The event also marked the debut of a website-publication Every Child’s Chance, Every Community’s Future (www.everychildschancenc.org). Every Child’s Chance highlights the vast scope of North Carolina public schools, past and present, and celebrates their measurable and immeasurable successes. NCASA hopes we can take this time to reflect on 175 years of growth in public education and the future ahead.
MetaMetrics was proud to partner with NCASA on this project. We hosted incubation meetings, where stakeholders from diverse backgrounds in education gathered to brainstorm the best ways to celebrate North Carolina’s first public school, Williamsburg Community in Rockingham County. Together, we formulated a message that is both reflective and relevant.
Members of the MetaMetrics team also contributed research to help create a historic and timely message. At Every Child’s Chance, you can walk through an interactive timeline of public schools in North Carolina, view video messages from educators and distinguished NC public school alumni and imagine the vibrant futures made available through a quality public school system. We’d love for you to visit Every Child’s Chance and celebrate the great achievements of North Carolina’s public schools.
