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

April 10, 2020

Each Friday, we are trying to end the week on a hopeful note. If you haven’t yet, please tune in to Alli’s podcast, Hope Starts Here. From her first “hello, hello” I was hooked. For those of you that follow our work on faith, Caroline brings you a series from Good Friday to Easter Monday on carpenters and housing. 

Todd Breyfogle at the Aspen Institute is putting together weekly readings to prompt meaningful reflection and conversation among families and teams. The one below has been important to me this week — from Gandhi on the purpose of education, to Maya Angelou’s “Mother’s Long View” and the important reminder that we all imagine growing up to be somebody, to Camus and his story, “The Plague,” to Jacob Lawrence’s Street Shadows. I hope it brings you joy and hope. Here is the full list of Aspen’s resources for Living and leading right now in this time.

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].
