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.

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].
