CTE bill passes Congress and heads to the President

The team at EducationNC extends our love and sympathy to the family of Phail Wynn, Jr. We appreciate and respect his public service to our students and our state.

Here is H.R. 2353, Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, which passed the U.S. House on voice vote yesterday and is headed to the President for his signature. Here is his statement.

EdNC is excited to announce we will be launching a postsecondary newsletter in August with a special emphasis around our community colleges — and we want to know what you would want to see in the newsletter. Will you take three minutes and weigh in? https://www.ednc.org/reach-nc-poll/postsecondary-newsletter-survey/

Today at 4 pm, the Fordham Institute will host a panel discussion on support for charter schools, entitled ” Can Charter Schools Survive Polarization and Populism?” Here is more information.
