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

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Yesterday, Education Week released a special report entitled, “Shaping Strong School Leaders.”  As I have talked to people across the state about EdNC’s research on the principal salary structure, I have been reminded how tough it is to be a principal.  Think about needing to be responsive to your district, the parents, the teachers, and the students.  And yet we know that great schools need great principals.  Read this report to learn more about what Education Week calls “an impossible job.”

Next week is school choice week, and EdNC will be presenting perspectives on school choice.  To get us started, here is a new report from the American Enterprise Institute, “Views from Private Schools:  Attitudes About School Choice Programs in Three States.”  

These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, Education Week, The Washington Post, The Hechinger Report, Inside Higher Ed, Education Next, Vox, Governing, NPR Ed, The News & Observer and Wake Ed Blog, The Charlotte Observer, Carolina Public Press, The Asheville Citizen-Times, The Winston-Salem Journal, The Fayetteville Observer, The Greenville Daily Reflector, Wilmington-Star News, The Hickory Daily Record, The Durham Herald-Sun, The Greensboro News & Record, The Lexington Dispatch, FOX Breaking News, WRAL, WUNC Radio, The Associated Press, State Government Radio, The Governor’s News, The Lieutenant Governor’s News, The N.C. General Assembly’s News, DPI’s News, The Carolina Journal, NC Policy Watch, and NC SPIN. If you have a source you’d like us to consider or an article you think needs to be included, email
