Wayne Carter

Wayne Carter is NBC 5's Education Reporter.

His "Carter in the Classroom" franchise airs on NBC 5 First at 4pm and highlights ways schools around North Texas are helping students achieve academic success.

Wayne believes strongly in helping parents see for themselves the work happening inside area schools. He showcases the struggles to master academics, and the success stories of making the grade.

Carter in the Classroom also gives parents and students a place to go for help if they’re having issues in school and need help finding solutions. Whether it’s a bus that’s routinely late or a question about “new math,” Wayne is here to help North Texans stay better connected with their child’s school and get answers to their concerns.

Wayne also launched "Brag About Your School" -- the campaign is an opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to showcase the unique things that make their school special. Wayne even hosts a live pep rally from the school.
