In 1868, a multiracial coalition of North Carolina legislators wrote into our state’s constitution that all citizens have the right to an education – a radical notion at its time. Their work is largely unreported. North Carolina is the only state which outlines public education as a right for all citizens in its constitution. We have never as a state delivered on the promise those representatives made in the constitution. But, the value that all citizens have a right to an education is ours, North Carolinians. And it is ours because of that brave moment in history. This short documentary tells the story of North Carolina public education over time. Produced in partnership with Every Child North Carolina.
