Editorial: The jobs governor

Abstract:
Gov. Bev Perdue called herself "the jobs governor" Tuesday, and she'd better be right. Her job depends on it.

She outlined promising ideas in Kannapolis Wednesday. They include utilizing technology that tracks every student's progress continuously throughout the year, providing incentives to put "great teachers" in every classroom and setting high standards and accountability.

The governor called on business leaders to tell educators what they need schools to do, but she spelled out the answer in her Kannapolis speech: students who can read and write well, understand math, communicate, work in teams, solve problems, think critically and learn. Too many high school graduates lack those skills, never mind the dropouts. That's a drag on North Carolina's future.

Promote innovation

Education is opportunity. Perdue must promote strong measures to revitalize K-12 education and to leverage the state's community colleges and universities for business development and job creation. She should support the growth of the N.C. A&T and UNCG Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, push for a UNCG pharmacy school and get behind other initiatives that will put North Carolina on the crest of innovation and advancement.
