Topic: The New NC Teaching Fellows Program

The original NC Teaching Fellows Program was eliminated by the General Assembly in 2011. This year legislators created a new version of the forgivable loan program targeting STEM and special education teachers. We talk with Deans from two of the Schools of Education recently selected for the inaugural class of new Teaching Fellows. We also chat with two leading education reporters about what’s been making headlines in education across the state.

Guests Include:

Dr. Mary Ann Danowitz, Dean, NC State College of Education

Dr. Ann Bullock, Dean, Elon University School of Education

Kelly Hinchcliffe, Education Reporter, WRAL News

Lisa Philip, Education Reporter, WUNC Radio
