I commend you, Steve, for your steadfast belief that we can be a better community through our public schools in Mecklenburg County.
To the extent that we make them better for every child, we make this a better community to live in.
I stand with you in this fight to raise the profile of our schools, applauding efforts that are successful and holding accountable those leaders in our community whose actions weaken the educational opportunities for many of the disadvantaged youth in our community.
I am proud to call you a friend.
