  1. Dr. Gorman has brought up removing 4-year-old education from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools responsibility and budget. Do your organizations have a position on this? What do you think about public education for 4-year-olds?

  2. We should get public schools out of the transportation business. Instead contract with public transit to provide that service. This is common in high density areas, like NYC

  3. Concerning funding for our public schools. If this is so important then why has the state taken 5.3 million dollars of Lottery money out of the Charlotte Mecklenburg schools?

  4. The bus system is no where near extensive enough to serve as school buses. For instance there is no city bus near where I live.
