A North Carolina State Board of Education Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in North Carolina as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed measure would have shifted authority from the Board of Education to an elected superintendent. Specifically, the board would become an advisory panel. Eight of the 11 board members would be chosen by the House speaker and Senate president.[1]

The current state constitution gives the Board of Education the authority supervise and administer public schools and the superintendent is named as the board's chief administrative officer and secretary. However, the proposed measure would transfer some of the board's authority to the superintendent.[1]

Text of measure
