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


The State Board of Education will meet remotely today, Monday, Sept. 28, at 10:30 a.m. The meeting agenda is available online and includes a link to audio access for the meeting.

The North Carolina Institute of Political Leadership and Spectrum news hosted a televised debate of the candidates for lieutenant governor and superintendent of public instruction. You can see both here.

The lieutenant governor serves on both the N.C. State Board of Education and N.C. State Board of Community Colleges. The contrast between the candidates is “sharp,” as analysts have noted. Here is an article by John Hood in the Carolina Journal about the debate and the race. 

WRAL released an “On the Record” interview over the week with the candidates for lieutenant governor. You can see the interviews here, and a follow up article, “On Facebook, NC’s Republican candidate for lieutenant governor lashes out, insults,” here.
