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

October 28, 2016

Earlier this week, the N.C. Center for Public Policy Research became part of the EdNC team. My life as a policy wonk started at the Center, and I am thankful for this opportunity. As a cohort, the Center staff over the years and the EdNC staff now believe in the value of independent research. We believe in the readability of good journalism. We believe in telling the stories of the public in public policy. We believe in North Carolina. Thank you for your ongoing support. Mebane

Applications for 2017-18 Kenan fellowships will be accepted beginning Tuesday, Nov. 1. These fellowships address the critical need to develop and empower high-quality teachers, who, in turn, make learning more authentic for students. The fellowship begins with a summer internship in a higher education lab or industry setting and is supported by 80 hours of professional development that focuses on building leadership capacity and proven instructional strategies. Fellowship projects have a unique set of criteria that in some cases is restricted by district, grade level and subject. Projects vary from scientific research to work experiences in the agriculture, energy and high-tech manufactoring industries. Each Fellow is awarded at least a $5,000 stipend, and must develop and implement relevant educational materials and/or programs based on their internship experience. Fellows remain in the classroom while completing the year-long fellowship. Here is more information.
