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


Congrats Superintendent Rob Jackson! Jackson will become the superintendent in Buncombe County Schools on Nov. 1. “As a former student and staff member and as the parent of Buncombe County Schools graduates, I am incredibly honored and excited by the opportunity to serve the children, families, and community of Buncombe County,” said Dr. Jackson.

I was out towards the end of last week. My apologies to the team at Southwestern Community College and the team at Jackson County Public Schools. A huge shout out to the team at EdNC for carrying on with the board and strategic council meeting.

To all of you who missed our Mountain Philosopher’s playlist for the weekend, it’s late, but here it is.

And in case you missed EdNC’s Early Bird, here it is.
