A hearing was held in Congress yesterday on this roadmap to reducing child poverty.

The George W. Bush Institute’s Education Reform Initiative released this updated report on how to attract, support, and retain strong principals, including research on Charlotte-Meck Schools.

From our colleagues at the Public School Forum:

The Public School Forum is now accepting applications for the 2020-21 cohort of the North Carolina Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP).


For over 40 years, the North Carolina Education Policy Fellowship Program has been the only statewide program of its kind that focuses on leadership and professional development in the context of education policy. Fellows come from public schools, higher education, as well as a diverse array of education organizations across North Carolina. Each class includes a cohort of fellows who focus on education policy issues and the wide range of factors that influence education in North Carolina. Fellows will increase their awareness of how public policy is made, learn whom the key players are in the formation of this policy, and become more confident and involved in the policy-making process.


Application information for both EPFP Central and EPFP West can be found online at


Priority deadline for applications is May 15, 2020. Contact Lauren Bock, Director of Policy & Programs, at with any questions.
