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


The mill closing in Canton is not going well. Turns out the company has never closed a mill before.

This week our team is out there with local and state leaders to help workers think about transitioning health insurance. At this point, I can’t find any evidence the company ever notified the insurance provider that the mill was closing on June 9.

Why is EdNC out there? When a crisis like this happens, we leverage our whole theory of change to provide support. Education institutions — from the Regional Center for the Advancement of Children to the district to the early college to the community college — will be the strategic assets for this community moving forward. Telling the story isn’t enough.

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].
