Changing hats, but my focus remains on education

Dear NC Policy Watch readers,

It’s been a great pleasure to connect with all of you and bring you news and information about what’s going on with public education here in North Carolina.

Today is my last day with NC Policy Watch, although I’ll still be wrapping up some remaining projects over the next few weeks. But do not despair: Policy Watch will continue its work covering important education issues—if you know anyone interested in working as an education reporter, please do be in touch!

I am excited to announce I’ll be joining the Fletcher Foundation as an education specialist. In that role, I’ll be conducting research, analysis and reporting on issues pertaining to education in North Carolina. In particular I’ll be taking closer looks at trends related to charter schools, educational equity, and the broader area of school choice, just to name a few topics.

And I will continue to collaborate with my colleagues at Policy Watch, so keep your eyes peeled for more from me here, too.

If you’d like to drop me a line, you can now find me at lindsay@ajf.org

Thanks again for reading and supporting NC Policy Watch.
