Important Message about LEARN NC

LEARN NC is evaluating its role in the current online education environment as it relates directly to the mission of UNC-Chapel Hill School of Education (UNC-CH SOE). We plan to look at our ability to facilitate the transmission of the best research coming out of UNC-CH SOE and other campus partners to support classroom teachers across North Carolina. We will begin by evaluating our existing faculty and student involvement with various NC public schools to determine what might be useful to share with you.

Don’t worry! The lesson plans, articles, and textbooks you use and love aren’t going away. They are simply being moved into the new LEARN NC Digital Archive. While we are moving away from a focus on publishing, we know it’s important that educators have access to these kinds of resources. These resources will be preserved on our website for the foreseeable future. That said, we’re directing our resources into our newest efforts, so we won’t be adding to the archive or updating its contents. This means that as the North Carolina Standard Course of Study changes in the future, we won’t be re-aligning resources. Our full-text and tag searches should make it possible for you to find exactly what you need, regardless of standards alignment.

My dear Friend Suffragist:-

As you know, our fight for ratification by the North Carolina legislature is over. We were unsuccessful in our efforts. Our North Carolina men have refused to ratify. We receive the gift of political equality at the hands of the men of other States. The Tennessee legislature has ratified. We hope within the next few days to have the Nineteenth Amendment promulgated by the Secretary of State.

To the Suffragists in the State who helped so faithfully in the organization and campaign work we extend appreciative thanks. Without the loyal co-operation of every individual we could never have accomplished what has been done.

One chapter in our history is over. Already we look forward to a program of education for our women and the stimulation of them to use their political power for the betterment of our State and nation.

To this end I beg you to hold together whatever local organization you have. We shall need it to carry out the work that lies before us.

With cordial good wishes, I am

Sincerely yours,

Gertrude Weil
