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


If you haven’t heard, it does not appear that there will be a budget this week. Colin Campbell has done a great job keeping us all posted. Follow him on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Our students face a variety of challenges — some that may be familiar to parents and many that simply did not exist in generations past, before fentanyl, cell phones, and social media.

Earlier this year, the North Carolina Department of Justice and Attorney General Josh Stein convened leaders from across North Carolina to discuss the challenges facing our youth and strategies to help keep them safe.

To follow up, they are organizing a series of webinars for parents, caregivers, and those who work with youth.

This series –Protecting the Next Generation of North Carolinians – will include experts to provide background information and practical tips to help keep NC kids healthy and safe.

The series kicks off on October 4 with Keeping Kids Safe at School, at Home, and in our Communities with Safe Gun Storage.

Here is more information on how you can join the conversation.

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].
