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

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The elections are just seven weeks away, and we hope to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions when you vote. Please listen to Alex’s podcasts with our candidates for Lieutenant Governor. They posted yesterday and are part of our coverage of the elections. Liz is out on the campaign trail this week, reporting on how candidates are talking about education. Today, I’ll be talking with Rob Boisvert at Time Warner Cable News in Charlotte about the elections.

Tonight, EdNC will host a community conversation about the Swann decision 45 years later, connecting the past, present, and future of this important case and its impact on our students and our schools, a community and our state. Our thanks to Adam Rhew for his great reporting.

Nation is off to DC for two days to attend Vox’s first conversation about ideas that will shape our future. Follow Nation on Twitter @NationHahn.
