Film incentives, graduation rates, ABCs attract research staff’s attention
Both the WSIC Radio morning program and the ComicBook.com website highlighted this week John Locke Foundation Director of Regulatory Studies Jon Sanders‘ work panning film incentives. That topic generated the first specialized report in Sanders’ larger JLF research series dedicated to Carolina Cronyism. N.C. Senate Republicans also promoted Sanders’ latest column on film incentives.
A Charlotte Observer editorial on North Carolina’s public school graduation rate cited Director of Research and Education Studies Terry Stoops‘ concerns about the possible link between a higher graduation rate and a growing percentage of new state community college students who need remedial course work. Both Stoops and Lindalyn Kakadelis of the N.C. Education Alliance joined Lockwood Phillips on WTKF’s “Viewpoints Radio” to discuss major public education policy issues. Stoops compared charter and traditional public school performance during an appearance on WPTF Radio.
