The North Carolina Education Alliance was created in 1998 and is now directed by Lindalyn Kakadelis, a former teacher
and Charlotte school board member. Its Steering Committee is made up of reform-minded school board members, county commissioners,
educators, and other local leaders.
The Alliance is a special project of the John Locke Foundation. Since it opened in 1990, the Locke Foundation has worked
hard to become the broadest-supported think tank in North Carolina. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, nonpartisan think tank
supported entirely from voluntary contributions. We doe not and would not accept government funds. We have received support
from nearly 1,500 individuals, businesses, and foundations.
The current Alliance web site was designed and developed by DesignHammer
Media Group, LLC, a Durham, North Carolina based web design firm in 2003. Please address any problems you experience
