2012 ballot measure

North Carolina State Board of Education Amendment (2012)

A 2012 proposed legislatively-referred constitutional amendment would shift some of the authority from the Board of Education to the 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] In order to qualify the measure for the ballot, the proposal must be approved by a 60% vote of each house of the North Carolina State Legislature. 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.
