Public Schools First NC (PSFNC) is a non-partisan, 501c3 non-profit, statewide organization focusing solely on public education issues affecting grades pre-K – 12. PSFNC works with teachers, parents, business and civic leaders, and communities across NC to advocate for an effective public education system that prepares each child for life.
PSFNC believes that public schools are the foundation of the American dream. Public schools take all children and provide them with a sound education, regardless of their race, their family income or where they live. With adequate resources and excellent teachers, public schools are the best places to promote student growth and academic achievement.
- Adequate, equitable funding that reflects the national average
- Programs and compensation that helps recruit, prepare, and retain experienced educators
- Access to high-quality pre-school, so each child comes to school “kindergarten ready”
