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


EdNC’s Nation lost his mom over the weekend. On Facebook he posted, “Our family joins the ranks of those who have lost someone to addiction — and the ranks of those grieving a terrible loss in 2020.” We are with you, Nation. Please hold Nation in love and light and send him your thoughts and prayers. 

This week EdNC will look at factors that influence district decisions to bring students back to school: the politics and the data, the science and the ethics, parent and teacher voice, etc. You can see the wide range of choices by districts across North Carolina reflected in the articles curated for our news aggregation today. Stay tuned.
