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


The U.S. House Education and Labor Committee will “examine the state of public education amid the Covid-19 pandemic,” today at noon here. The hearing, “Budget Cuts and Lost Learning: Assessing the Impact of COVID-19 on Public Education,” will also look at inequities, achievement gaps, and state and local public education funding. We hear Superintendent Mark Johnson will be testifying.
