First in Future: Patrick Miller and Brad Wilson

A little more than a year ago a report that was in many ways 25 years in the making came out. Over the course of 287 pages, it recommends a series of changes that the state of North Carolina needs to make to ensure that it meets its constitutional obligation to provide each child a sound basic education. In this episode of First in Future, two members of the Governor’s Commission on access to sound basic education, Patrick Miller and Brad Wilson, discuss the report and actions needed going forward.

Nuestro South Podcast

The Nuestro South Podcast is a five-part podcast series that explores the stories of Latina/o/x people in the U.S. South from the Jim Crow era on through to the present. Join the conversation as the hosts unpack the experience of being Latina/o/x in Nuestro South.

Data Lit

Teachers are inundated with data, but none of those numbers will help if they’re not paired with some accessible and informative data literacy training. This podcast seeks to empower teachers with the skills they’ll need to turn the data given to them into powerful instructional practices.
