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


Thanks for reading this week! There is a lot in this issue of EdDaily I hope you’ll take time to unpack over the weekend. Alex Granados is starting a weekly series with Jen Mangrum and Catherine Truitt so we can better get to know our candidates for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Molly Osborne wraps up this week’s articles on FAFSA. Liz Bell reports on the latest meeting about literacy and the state’s ongoing discussion about the definition of high quality reading instruction. And Mary Willson extends an invitation — join us for a series of convenings with Ben Owens to discuss how innovation can move us from pinch points to possibility for our students, our state, and our future.

The State Board of Education will meet remotely Wednesday and Thursday, June 3 and 4, for its regular monthly meeting. The agendas for this meeting and executive summaries are available online.
