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


Happy Monday, y’all.

ICYMI | There was a presentation on community colleges to joint ed appropriations last week. Here is the presentation. Here is the formula budget allocation. If you want a transcript of the meeting, let me know.

The N.C. Tribune is reporting this morning two things that are interesting to me about UNC’s Budget Request: 1) incent to retire funding: “$16.8 million reserve to induce some professors at five of the system’s 16 universities to retire;” 2) completion assistance funding: “$10.5 million request for recurring money for completion assistance programs.”

The Whole Child NC Advisory Committee, an advisory committee of the State Board of Education, will hold its quarterly meeting Thursday, Feb. 23, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. in the 7th floor boardroom, Education Building, 301 N. Wilmington St., Raleigh.

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].
