Jordan Wilkie

Jordan Wilkie reports on community colleges and postsecondary education for EducationNC. Jordan began his career covering criminal justice, spent a year covering elections integrity, and is now flexing his wonky muscles on community-college education policy in North Carolina. Jordan is west-coast born, was Texas raised, and spent seven years in Oregon before moving to North Carolina to pursue journalism. All of Jordan’s favorite teachers had a career before they became educators, so he’s doing that, too.
