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


Here is the video of the oral arguments in Leandro.

For all the wonks out there, the summaries of substantive ratified legislation are out. Here is the education summary, and here you can see the summaries by bill.

Next week the House Select Committee on Education Reform meets on Monday and Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee meets on Tuesday.

Each week, between now and the end of the school year, we are going to spotlight a student, educator, or public education advocate that inspires hope.

Mason Hughes, a senior, is the manager for the varsity men’s basketball team at Mountain Heritage High School in Yancey County Schools. He was invited to play in an exhibition game prior to the varsity boys’ game recently.

Watch and share the video please.

“This was an incredible showing of sportsmanship and a moment that Mason will never forget!,” Mountain Heritage Principal Daron Williams said to education leaders in Burke County Schools. “We are very grateful to Draughn High School for their sincere support for Mason and in allowing this moment of unity.”

Here is your playlist for the weekend with additions each week from Jeff McDaris.
