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


Dr. Monique Perry-Graves is the executive director of Teach For America North Carolina. She serves on EdNC’s Board of Directors, and you can see the impact of her leadership not just in our work but in both of our articles today. Dr. Perry-Graves serves on the DRIVE Task Force, and TFA NC is piloting an initiative called Future Forward, an evidence-based coaching program that will kick off in Randolph County with an investment from Toyota Tsusho America, Inc. Last year, the Aspen Institute announced a scholarship opportunity for TFA NC’s more than 2,200 alumni to enroll in one of the Aspen Institute’s signature leadership development programs, the Aspen Executive Seminar on Leadership, Values, and the Good Society. She is on my list of leaders to watch in 2024 and beyond.

Here is your playlist for the week from Jeff McDaris.

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].
