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


Last week, we hosted with the John M. Belk Endowment a convening on adult learners and the future of higher education.

52 of 58 community colleges were represented!

Whatever your interest in education, take a minute to read more about demographic changes facing our state as laid out by the amazing Jim Johnson. “If we’re going to maintain our superiority as the most attractive place to live and do business in this country, we’re going to have to be serious about talent development, recruitment, and retention,” he said.

NC Reconnect is the initiative to re-engage and enroll adult learners in North Carolina community colleges. Don’t miss the four research briefs released by our colleagues at the Belk Center on this initiative.

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].
