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


The N.C. Association of County Commissioners released an analysis of election results, finding Republicans hold a majority on 61 county boards, Democrats hold a majority on 37, and two are split evenly. The boards provide local funding for our schools.

Here is the October 31 report from the N.C. Controller. There is $1.1 billion in the rainy day fund and $1.47 in unappropriated general fund balance. The income tax receipts for this FY are higher because the deadline was pushed to July and sales tax receipts look good.

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].
