High hopes for Made in Durham

By Bert L’Homme

Special to The Herald-Sun


We have a lot of work to do to bring Durham Public Schools and each of our 33,750 students to their fullest potential. There are examples of greatness and innovation across our entire county: students acing Advanced Placement courses, children bent over laptops and tablets in one-to-one technology environments, and elementary children learning Mandarin Chinese or working in Montessori classrooms. What our school district needs to achieve — and will achieve — is consistent excellence in every classroom on every campus.
