North Carolina boasts one of the nation’s most renowned education systems. The state is home to the oldest public university and the nation’s third largest community college system. Among the top four states nationally for pre-kindergarten programs, North Carolina’s Smart Start Program has received the prestigious Innovations in American Government Award from the Ford Foundation and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
