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


Meet Leshaun Jenkins, the principal at Pattillo Middle School in Edgecombe County. He is 31 diary entries into chronicling what it is like to be a principal. Here is his Facebook page. The posts that are part of the diary are dated and identified as a diary entry. It’s a great longer, slower read by the fireplace over the holidays.

Shout out to our colleague, Sarah Langer Hall. Hall has been named director of NC State’s Institute for Emerging Issues, effective January 1, 2023!

Here is your playlist for the holidays. As our mountain philosopher, Superintendent Jeff McDaris reminds us weekly, “Breathe. Reflect. Dedicate.”

Very thankful for all you all do for our students and our state. Please be careful in the cold.

EdDaily will be on holiday next week unless something happens you need to know about.

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].
