We have a unique opportunity to set a new course for North Carolina children and our state. The North Carolina Supreme Court will decide on the important constitutional questions at the heart of the 28-year-old Leandro case at the end of August.
Advocates and policy experts, including the NC Justice Center, worked to put together two important amicus briefs. They will be filed with the Supreme Court in August to support this historic opportunity to protect the constitutional right of every child to a sound basic education.
One amicus brief will be from our State’s business leaders
This brief will argue that a sound basic education for every child is the foundation for a strong economy and the source of good jobs, personal independence, strong citizenship, prosperity, and a stable progressive future for North Carolina.
To make a difference today, business leaders in support of Leandro implementation are encouraged to sign the Business Leaders Amicus Brief by July 15, 2022.
If you are a business executive and are interested in this brief, or have individuals on your board who are, please contact Gerry Hancock.
Signatures for the brief must be received by July 15, so time is of the essence.
