CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education approved its equity policy Tuesday night.
The policy is to ensure all students get a quality education no matter the student's background.
The goal is to break links among socioeconomic status, race and ethnicity to educational opportunities and achievement.
The board is creating a Community Equity Committee, which is made up of parents, students and people from the education and faith community.
They'll meet regularly to review reports and monitor progress.
