While the nation focuses on job creation, Governor Beverly Perdue aims to recharge the education system in NC.
Thursday Governor Perdue spoke before students and staffers at Pamlico Community College about the importance of preparing high school students for college and jobs of tomorrow.
Many students come out of high school without necessary skills to succeed and Governor Perdue called for change, saying "I believe that the better prepared the student body can be prepared they can be as they move forward in other aspects of their lives."
Hopes are other state leaders will jump on board to push this effort statewide.
