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


For those of you who know and love Sam Houston, please check out and share this report about STEM education in the next decade.

For those of you who are following our work in Canton and the impact of the mill closing on the schools, community college, town, and county, please check out our update on the partnerships that were needed to make sure the mill workers and their families health care insurance didn’t lapse. As I say in the article, in my 30 years of public policy work in NC, it is the best case of community solutioning in crisis I have seen, solving for who can lead, who can implement, and who can fund to ensure health care coverage and that the social determinants of health were attended to more broadly for those impacted. My personal and professional thanks to the local leaders and the philanthropists — you know who you are — for your support as we have tried to create together a new model to do this well.

The State Board will vote today on the charter school review board policy, and we will update our article. Stay tuned.

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].
