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


After recessing its meeting yesterday, the State Board of Education announced it will reconvene today, Friday, April 8, at 3:30 p.m. to conclude its business from the previous day. The meeting will be held virtually and will be audio streamed via the Department of Public Instruction’s YouTube channel. EdNC’s Alex Granados is on it. Here is his recap of what’s happened so far this week at the board meeting, an update on the teacher licensure model, and a look at the State Board’s report to the legislature on moving from ADM to FTE.

EdNC is visiting all 10 HBCUs across North Carolina. Take a look at my visit to Johnson C. Smith University earlier this week.

Superintendent Jeff McDaris has updated our playlist for the weekend. You can check it out here on Spotify.
