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

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

The Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is sponsoring a screening of The Toughest Job: William Winter’s Mississippi, a documentary on former Governor William Winter’s efforts to pass the state’s Education Reform Act of 1982.

The free screening will be followed by a discussion with Governor Winter and former North Carolina Governor Jim Hunt, moderated by David Dodson, president of the Durham-based nonprofit MDC.

The event will be held tonight from 5:30-7:30 at the University’s FedEx Global Education Center.

You can view a trailer of the film here.

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].
