This week we are introducing you to a major new initiative of EdNC — Reach NC Voices.

Reach NC Voices is a statewide project designed to survey North Carolinians in real time to understand how they feel about the broad array of issues facing our students, parents, educators, and communities. We will be testing innovative methods, such as text, online surveys, and our Facebook chatbot, to both survey individuals across the state and collect their stories.

This project would not have happened without the support of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. My thanks to Nation for his leadership.

You can sign up here.

Please forward this email to your friends, family, and colleagues. Encourage them to join us. We believe our state will be better for it.
