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

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Last week, I was in rural Madison County, researching the amazing Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education, which explores the nexus of literacy and STEM to create 21st century opportunities. I met a beautiful, young, very smart middle school girl. In her story — from being removed from her family by DSS to being raised by her grandparents to understanding what it is like to have access to food and health care to discovering in school that she loves science experiments and reading — you can see all of the challenges and more importantly the opportunities our schools face. Today, EdNC is releasing our 2015-16 annual report. I am so proud of work of the EdNC team and humbled by the support of our community. It is an honor for us. Thank you all.
