The proposals were among many ideas for better connecting downtown Durham’s arts districts unveiled Tuesday during the presentation of the “Durham SmART Initiative Vision Plan” at the Durham Arts Council.

Remembering why we support public schools

The adage is true: time flies.

The 2014-15 school year is receding in the distance, although it is not quite over. We have students working in summer programs. Teachers have been participating in professional development. Principals are hiring staff.


Honoring some great educators

Restoring a measure of respect

In budget, protecting instruction is top priority

High hopes for Made in Durham
