Durham County Manager Wendell Davis is wise to request a “get together” with Durham Public Schools administrators and board of education members concerning the county's contribution to future school district budgets.
If pupils attending Durham Public Schools are not doing as well on third- and fifth-grade proficiency tests as pupils from the other five largest North Carolina districts the question which should be asked of Superintendent Bert L’Homme is are parents being encouraged by teachers and other district staff to become actively involved in their childrens' classroom work.
Active parental involvement and encouragement are essential to success in school and increasing scores on proficiency tests.
