Two of North Carolina’s governors, current and past, are in Denver for a national symposium on education.
“If you want a strong economy and good jobs, you have to have good education,” Hunt said at Sunday’s kickoff address on Sunday, according to a tweet by symposium organizers.
U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos participated Sunday by Skype.
The Governors Education Symposium puts governors in touch with educators, business leaders, policymakers and researchers in panel discussions and information sessions.
Hunt was considered one of North Carolina’s preeminent education governors while in office.
