The Center for Diversity in Education
The Center for Diversity Education has worked in K-12 schools throughout Western North Carolina since 1995. All programs directed at K-12 schools connect to the North Carolina Essential Standards and Common Core. Programs through the Center help teachers meet Standard II of the NC Teacher Evaluation Process. In the 2011/2012 school year, the Center worked with approximately 10,000 students and teachers in 9 counties in Western North Carolina.
