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


Happy Feb. 29th! Here are fun math facts from NASA’s JPL on why we have leap day. Did you know that  years divisible by 100 don’t have leap days unless they’re also divisible by 400? So 2000 was a leap year, but 2100, 2200, and 2300 will not be.

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].
