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


Everyone is curious about when the legislators are coming back to Raleigh and when we will have a budget. News outlets are reporting that Speaker Moore has indicated not to expect votes on veto overrides or other legislation until mid-August at the earliest. Practically, there are several steps to go with the budget though legislative leaders are indicating those negotiations and the process are on track. Appropriation chairs will be back this coming week, then the conferees will get looped in, and once there is agreement the bill and the committee report have to be updated, before it goes back to the chambers for a vote. End of August seems best case to me at this point.

From Jeff McDaris:

High School athletic practices began this week! It is time for a new academic year to begin for our public schools! We welcome the 2023-2024 school year with excitement, anxious uncertainty, worry, resolve, and determination! Time for some music!

Welcome to Week #1 for this year’s journey, called “The Journey Continues – 2023-2024.”  Songs for and about the week in #nced.

All analogies and inferences are yours. Some of the songs just “feel good”! Some capture a sentiment or mood we may reflect upon. Some may mean much more. Thank you for your support of NC Education!

And here is the new playlist for the school year ahead.

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.
