Public Education


The ministers who came together to form the North Carolina Council of Churches were united in their opposition to segregation, especially in the state’s public schools. That concern for a sound public education for all, from pre-K to college, continues to be part of the Council’s call to social justice.

From advocacy for adequate state funding of our schools to work against resegregation, our commitment to a strong public education system is ongoing.

The lectionary-based Acts of Faith section on public education provides a pastoral reflection, hymn and text suggestions and more for sharing the vision of strong public schools as a vital social justice issue.
