The class size debate is complicated, muddied by other issues – the battle over tax cuts, charter school expansion, private school voucher and school board-county commission relations.

On June 12, NCNC hosted a short policy primer to provide a direct and clear backgrounder and to hear the perspectives of those who turn education policy into classroom reality. 

The presentation of Philip Price, Kerry Crutchfield and Kathy Hartenstine are provided here for as a learning resource.
