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


Things wrapped up late night at the legislature. The plan right now is to hold skeletal sessions until Saturday, July 11, when legislators will convene to take up bills that may be vetoed by the Governor. Then they will adjourn until September 2. Here are the bills pending the Governor’s signature. Here is a link to the adjournment resolution (note the amendment changing the date from July 7 to July 11).

Here is the letter the Council of Chief State Officers sent to Congress on June 24.

Our colleagues at RTI, led by EdNC contributor and former teacher Allison Redden, are hosting a webinar on Monday, June 29, at 3 p.m. on how COVID-19 will shape the next academic year. Register here.

Let’s end the week with some delight. Take a listen to Rapsody’s message about FAFSA to our seniors! As she says, “follow your dreams, work hard, and congratulations, peace and love.”

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].
