In the video clips below from a casual, unscripted conversation on Nov. 29, 2012 in Charlotte, Arthur Griffin makes his case that his native Charlotte community can, and should, hold equally high expectations for all of its children. Doing that, he says, will require the school board to put in place both goals and means to assess progress toward the goals.
The conversation is laced with what Griffin has learned watching a grandchild learn. Griffin also brings to the conversation three decades of advocacy for educational improvement.
