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


In case you don’t know him, meet Marlow Artis. Marlow is chief content purveyor and executive producer of Tar Heel Teachers. Each week, he produces Tar Heel Teachers at Home, a videocast focused on engaging North Carolinians in conversations around education. The show premiered in February 2019. Marlow previously served for five years as a sixth grade English/Language Arts teacher.

We’ve been cross-publishing these episodes on EdNC for a while. Be sure to take a look at today’s episode, which features the educational experiences of 15 Black men in North Carolina — from policymakers to researchers to equity officers, from superintendents to principals to teachers to students. Artis says, “racism is embedded in every system in our society, including our schools.” 

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].
