Follow along as EdNC heads to India with teachers, leaders

Editor's Note: Molly Osborne, who joined the EdNC team on July 1, is heading to India. Molly worked with us last summer, and she is recent graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School. I couldn't be more excited to see this country through the eyes of our teachers and leaders. Ahead of their trip, I have been reading Arundhati Roy's "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness" and Anja Manuel's "This Brave New World." Manuel writes in the introduction, "In this context, the word brave is crucial. Our leadership must be confident. Our strategy must be subtle. Our diplomacy must be resolute." As you think about the brave new world facing North Carolina, help us imagine a 21st century state and the education system our children deserve. — Mebane Rash
