This guide provides an introduction to state government in North Carolina. It has three aims: to provide information about the organization and function of state departments and agencies; to provide content on ideas and issues relevant to democratic government; and to provide information that establishes a foundation for participatory citizenship. The information in the guide is organized into the following categories: federal government, state government, legislative branch, judicial branch, and political process. Information about North Carolina also is featured in 14 appendices, including education statistics (p105), North Carolina counties population map, state budget, and state symbols. While much of the information is transitory (state officers, elected state senators and representatives, etc.) a significant amount is stable and continuing. (DB)
