NC’s former Superintendent of Education, June Atkinson, has formed a new Education company called Emerald Education.
The three-term incumbent was ousted last year by Mark Johnson, who campaigned on dismantling Common Core, meanwhile Atkinson defended the standards like it was her own child.

Emerald Education Services is 100% staffed with employees who served under Atkinson at the Department of Public Instruction.
The services being offered on the website are:
Principal & School Leader Development
Strategic Planning – State, District & School Level Alignment
Another service offered is “Parent & Community Engagement.”
Sad that people will not read the Common Core standards and give constructive feedback but are willing to spread myths. #stopcommoncore

Hopefully, someone other than the former Superintendent will be providing that portion of their services.
