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

3/2/2021

The N.C. State Board of Education meets on Wednesday and Thursday.

Today, all across our state and our country, teachers, teenagers, librarians, politicians, actors, athletes, parents, and grandparents will be reading to our students. According to the website, “Launched in 1998 by the National Education Association (NEA) and guided by a committee of educators, NEA’s Read Across America is the nation’s largest celebration of reading.”

Apply to be a part of the myFutureNC Local Educational Attainment Collaborative Network. The ncIMPACT Initiative at the UNC School of Government (ncIMPACT) and myFutureNC, with support from the John M Belk Endowment, will offer a two-year pilot program that supports 10 local educational attainment collaboratives across the state that seek to significantly increase the number of students successfully completing postsecondary credentials of value in the workforce: a degree, credential, or certification. Here is more information, click here to sign up for a webinar for more information, and/or click here to apply.

From EdNC’s Alex Granados:

The Senate was unable last night to override Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of a bill that would have forced districts to bring students back into classrooms. 

The vote to override was 29-20 in favor of overriding the veto. But the Senate needed a 2/3rds majority voting in favor in order to override the veto. 

Read more about the specifics of the bill in last week’s legislative round-up.
