Education Roundup, 9/7/18

Hey all,

The biggest education news in NC this week has been the state’s newest round of test scores and school grades.

Here’s one overview.

Adrian at Tales of an Educated Debutante has been knocking it out of the park all week.  I particularly liked her post on Read to Achieve.  Since I can’t seem to isolate the link to just one post, head over and check out her whole page.  It’s worth it.

We also learned this week that many NC voters aren’t yet well-informed about the six constitutional amendments on the ballot in November.  While all of the amendments, IMO, should be rejected, the tax cap amendment is particularly harmful to education, and to the continued financial well-being of our state.  Here are a few articles explaining why:
