"This week, EdNC offers an in-depth look at the Hoke County Schools. A lead plaintiff in the Leandro lawsuit – which established that each child in North Carolina has a state constitutional right to a sound, basic education – this rural, low-wealth school system under the leadership of Dr. Freddie Williamson has adopted a no excuses philosophy to educating students in poverty with buy-in from all of the stakeholders in the county. The Hoke County Way is all about the learners and the learning. It’s nonnegotiable."
