Education Action Team

The Education Action Team focuses on the League of Women Voters' belief that high-quality public education for all children is necessary to sustain our democratic way of life and the economic health of our state and the people. We believe that adequate funding is essential to provide and sustain such an education.

To that end, the LWVNC:

Position

Support of a high degree of excellence in local education based on flexible blend of state and local funding, supplemented with federal funding.

Sleep Health

A lack of sleep is taking a toll on teen health, safety, and learning. Our position promotes "healthy school hours" for all students based on adolescent sleep research. Too-early school start times are a national public health concern with consequences impacting children, families, and the community at large. Besides forcing many children to walk and drive to school in pre-dawn darkness, these hours are creating a generation deprived of the sleep that growing brains and bodies require.
