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

On the importance of civic news organizations

Morning, y’all.

If you have a few minutes this weekend, please read Julie Sandorf’s article on local news, our feature read today. “The decline of local coverage—a lack of eyes upon the street—leads to chronic civic problems,” she writes. Sandorf is the president of the Charles H. Revson Foundation.

At EdNC, it is our privilege to cover our students from cradle to career, from their early childhood through their postsecondary education and lifelong learning that happens at our 58 community colleges in communities all across North Carolina.

“A community is made up of shared moments, and local news is crucial for sharing these moments,” writes Sandorf.  “If these moments are lost, we all lose.” Thank you for reading and supporting EdNC.

North Carolina Farm Bureau President Larry Wooten’s tenure will draw to a close next week. Wooten has served on EdNC’s Board of Directors. Here NC State looks back over his education, career, and leadership.

President Pro Tempore Senator Phil Berger published this op-ed in the News & Observer on November 25. NC Policy Watch published this teacher’s response yesterday.

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].
