Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is seeking questions for the superintendent via the district's Facebook page. Selected questions will be featured in this weekend's "Facebook Edition" of InSight, Superintendent Heath Morrison's monthly broadcast on CMS-TV.
Post your question by 5 p.m. Thursday and it might be selected for the show that airs at 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There's already a question about school security from Stephanie Moore-Rice: "How easy is it for someone to just walk in a school during the day, and how fast can someone stop an unrecognized guest?"
Coretta Wilson, an Alexander Graham Middle School teacher who used to be a WCNC anchor, interviews Morrison on InSight. On the last Facebook episode, he took a question from Kandace Mitchell, a Chantilly Montessori parent, about creating more year-round schools and one from Amy Rinehart Rosenhour about changing high school start times. You can watch it here -- or if you want something shorter than the four-minute clip, Morrison says he'd like to have more calendar flexibility but that's up to the state. And he says the district will "continue to look into" changing school hours, but notes that there are a range of parent views and a "delicate balance" involved in making changes.
