New Hanover County Public Schools

A new school year typically heralds change and with that, plenty to discuss. Which is why last week, Dr. Tim Markley, New Hanover County School District’s superintendent, made appearances at Ashley, Gregory and Laney Schools to host Q&A sessions with parents. Markley also addressed the implications of state cuts to public education head on. The superintendent is urging educators and parents to start viewing public education like a competitive business.
