Sept. 11. Dr. Crystal Hill, the new superintendent of Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, will be the featured speaker at a Newsmakers Breakfast Q&A Sept. 22 at The Peninsula Club.

She leads the second-largest school system in North Carolina.

Public education is a timely topic, not only as the 23-24 school year gets under way, but as CMS fields complaints that it is too large and not sufficiently responsive to North Meck needs.

  1. Deaf children in CMS are not doing well. They should have more Deaf teachers and have better language acquisition. The Deaf children are being left out in the system. We, tax payers, want to have the best education possible for our Deaf children. We pay ten thousand dollars for each Deaf chid, what does CMS do with the money??? We want all the Deaf children to be together.Please help! Many parents with Deaf children are naive and not knowing what to do. Let our Deaf children learn America Sig Language without any barrier.
