EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation is adding four program officers. Here is more information. I am super excited about the leadership of the new executive director, Joy Vermillion Heinsohn. The foundation recently invested almost $20 million through 146 grants to prompt statewide systemic change. These are important jobs. Take a look, spread the word, apply.

If you have a good news story about public education, but don’t have time to write it, reach out to me at mrash at with your idea. Joe Ableidinger and I co-wrote the story today on SparkNC. Our learning journey was fun and efficient — at least for me! Let’s tell more stories together in 2024.

These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, The 74, Education Week, The NC Tribune, The Insider, The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, WUNC, WFAE, Brookings, Education Commission of the States, and DPI’s News. A cross section of diverse sources are checked weekly and monthly. If you have an article you think needs to be included, email [email protected].
