Talking Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools with Superintendent Clayton Wilcox

Dr. Clayton Wilcox stopped by the Rising studio to talk about the new equity report released by CMS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Tonight, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board will meet for the first time since the release of a new report which finds race and poverty are significant factors in CMS student’s educational achievements.

The ‘Breaking the Link’ study found what many may have already guessed; white students in CMS’ low-poverty schools have the best shot at getting the best teachers, and graduating ready for college. Black and Hispanic students in high-poverty schools largely get left behind.

Terrance talked with CMS superintendent, Dr. Clayton Wilcox, about where the district goes from here.
