“Rodney is a teacher, and he has spent his career in some of the most poorly-funded districts in the state. I’ve known Rodney for almost ten years because he has been one of our state’s most consistent advocates for school children. His passion for educational equity and mine are closely aligned. We need him in Raleigh bringing voice for those kids, their families, and their communities.”
