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

Monday, August 14, 2017

The world is watching what happened in Charlottesville, Va., this weekend. NPR wants to hear from teachers. If you talk about Charlottesville in your classes this week, or have resources to recommend, please contact [email protected] [email protected].

North Carolina: The New American Heartland is a multi-dimensional initiative — highlighted by a three-day gathering on September 27–29, 2017 — enlisting scholars, artists, critics, journalists, educators, economic forecasters, policy experts, activists, community leaders, business owners, and others to critically consider North Carolina’s role as a bellwether for the nation.

EducationNC is partnering with the National Humanities Center to explore the worlds of food, and consider how this most central aspect of our daily lives is intertwined with education, changes in demographics, poverty, regionalization and globalization, and the health of all of our people now and in the future. Nation is our lead on this event so you won’t be surprised that throughout the forum, we will also directly appreciate the richness and diversity of North Carolina food culture in meals prepared by community chefs employing techniques and traditions from North Carolina’s past as well as those being introduced by new arrivals.

Teachers, if you would like to join us at the Heartland forum, contact Mebane at [email protected] for a complimentary ticket.

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].
