What they’re saying about Education in NC (WE 2/7/15)

This is some of what they’re saying about education in North Carolina for week ending 2/7/15.  See the Common Core Weekend Reads on Sunday for Common Core Specific news.


The Kindergarten Entry Assessment  (KEA)was piloted in 50% of schools in North Carolina this school year. See my previous article on the KEA.
