You CAN help keep All Kinds of Minds in NC’s Budget!

States across the country are facing tough decisions about education expenditures in the face of declining revenues and increasing budget shortfalls, North Carolina is no exception.

On Tuesday, N.C. Governor Bev Perdue announced that tax revenues collected on April 15 were $1 billion short of what is needed to get North Carolina through the current fiscal year, which ends June 30. Shortfall projections for the coming fiscal year have not yet been announced, but will be at least $3.3 billion and could be much higher. The General Assembly is facing the need to make drastic cuts in next year’s budget, which puts the crucial funding that All Kinds of Minds receives from the state in jeopardy.

This funding enables All Kinds of Minds to bring the science of learning to educators and classrooms across North Carolina. By providing educators with research-based knowledge and tools that equip them to understand, identify and address how different students learn – particularly those who are struggling – we help schools increase student achievement and ensure that every child reaches his or her promise.

Please help us continue the work we do – North Carolina cannot afford to let struggling students slip through the cracks!  Contact these key decision makers and let them know the value of our work:
