A news report by broadcast station FOX8 WGHP on a new task force, appointed by North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, features Cherrel Miller Dyce, associate professor of education and director of intercultural education.
Miller Dyce has been appointed to the governor’s Develop a Representative and Inclusive Vision for Education (DRIVE) task force, which is focused on improving equity and inclusion in education and will submit a report to the governor with recommendations to reach that goal.
In the FOX8 story, Miller Dyce explains the importance of representation and inclusivity in classrooms.
“That provides an avenue and outlet for students to see themselves in a more robust manner,” Miller Dyce told FOX8.
The DRIVE task force is comprised of 32 parents, educators, administrators, education advocates, representatives of state and local government, representatives from the University of North Carolina system and North Carolina Community College System, and employers with a presence in North Carolina.
