Don't Just Take Our Word For It

For years, education stakeholders from across the state have relied on the accurate, timely, and easily accessible information found in Facts & Figures: Education in North Carolina to make data-driven decisions and develop meaningful solutions to our state's most pressing education issues. We asked a few of those stakeholders to tell us what makes Facts & Figures their go-to guide for education data.

The 2023 edition of Facts & Figures was developed in partnership with dozens of stakeholders and represents the collected efforts of hundreds of hours of research, reporting, and review. Thank you to our members who continue to support this important work and champion the programs and policies that improve the lives of students, educators, and school leaders alike.
