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


In my article on superintendent turnover, there is a bit of news that many of you — if you haven’t heard — will find both interesting and hopeful. Jeff McDaris, our resident mountain philosopher and curator of playlists that encourage us to breathe, reflect, and dedicate, is now the director of regional impact for myFutureNC. We can’t wait to see you on the road, sir.

More fun news: Rupen’s son, Shailen, is part of an incredible team of students at Enloe High School who have created a lifesaving menstrual pad. Read more about it in The Triangle Tribune, WRAL, and WUNC. Our public school students do absolutely incredible things! Shailen, we are so proud of you.

The N.C. State Board of Education meets today and tomorrow.

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].
