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


Huge shout out to LeadershipNC for the idea behind today’s article about our public school students. I’ve been looking at this data for 30 years now, and it was great to have leaders ask questions in a way that encouraged me to see the data differently. Also thankful to Nathan Dollar and Mary Ann Wolf for your contributions to the article, and to Lanie Sorrow on design. Please share with your networks. And let me know what other questions you have about our students at mrash at

Governor Cooper will be in Burke County today visiting Forest Hill Elementary and then the North Carolina School of Science and Math.

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].
