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


We want you to be comfortable walking in to the legislature, calling a legislator. Here is State Government Advocacy 101.

Here is who is who on the ed committees this session.

Here is your legislative preview on early childcare, K-12, community colleges and postsecondary access, and equity.

Here is your bill tracker, updated weekly.

Team EdNC is at the legislature. You can find Liz covering early childcare; Alex on K-12; Hannah on community colleges, postsecondary access, and HBCUs; and Rupen covering anything and everything touching on equity.

Today students from the NC10, our Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across North Carolina, will gather at the NC General Assembly to speak directly with lawmakers and advocate for the issues that matter most to them.

As part of their HBCU Advocacy Day, students will hold a press conference at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday in the legislative press conference room. The students will share their views and concerns, and call on state lawmakers to meaningfully support HBCUs in North Carolina.
