Education From The Outside In Education is under siege, but in Charlotte, there are several groups working to provide students the resources needed to succeed. Some of the possible solutions to our education problems include funding special programs for at-risk kids, working with parents and families to provide educational help in the home, and even lengthening the school day. We'll talk with people from some of the organizations striving for improved education for students in Charlotte about their view on how our area schools are doing and what they can do better to provide quality education. Guests Jerri Fatticci - Exec. Director, Citizen Schools North Carolina Winn Maddrey - Executive VP of Topics Education Katie B. Morris - Chair of the Board, Belk Foundation Event | Education Innovation Symposium on March 16th hosted by Citizen Schools.
