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


Happy Thanksgiving. I am so very thankful for our educators all the time but especially this year. I’ll be with my boys for Thanksgiving so EdDaily won’t be in your inboxes again until after the holiday.

For those of you coming to the AIM conference just after the holidays, EdNC is sponsoring a food truck rodeo featuring NC singer/songwriter Kate Rhudy on Monday night, Nov. 29 in the NCAE parking lot. Please join us!

EducationNC is turning 7 in January, and we are thinking about our work and our impact in North Carolina. How are we doing? What changes or improvements would you like to see? Let us know what you think in this short survey. Your responses will inform our work moving forward. And, if you leave your name and email in the final question, you’ll have a chance to receive one of 5 $10 Amazon gift cards. Thank you!

Who wants to be a teacher? by APM Reports

Many schools around the country are struggling to find enough teachers. Large numbers of teachers quit after a short time on the job, so schools are constantly struggling to replace them. This four-part podcast by APM Reports explores how schools are addressing this challenge and its impact on the community.

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.
