Margaret Spellings, former U.S. Secretary of Education, just took the reins as head of the University of North Carolina system. Her appointment swirled controversy for how it was done and she was met with protests on her first day in office. But on that first day, she laid out her plans for the system and her agenda for her first several weeks on the job. That may have gotten lost in the news about the protests.

Spellings joined host Mike Collins on Charlotte Talks Tuesday to explain her vision for the UNC system and discuss the role of higher education in North Carolina.
