Another pilgrimage of sort--visiting high schools across North Carolina
How hard to leave those Celtic mists! I returned home to pack another suitcase for a busy month of travel for the Office of Admissions of Wake Forest University. In the last two weeks, I have visited over 50 high schools, traveled over 2000 miles across the great state of North Carolina, seen sights from Murphy to New Bern, distributed almost 4000 pieces of admissions literature at College Fairs across the state. In the next few days, I will share my observations of the state of public school education and the need for greater attention to secondary education by institution of higher education.
