Liz Schlemmer
Shellena Atlas, a school counselor at Riverside High, was among those protesting at the Minnie Forte-Brown Staff Development Center on Hillandale Road in Durham on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024.

On the North Carolina News Roundup…

School closures and protests in Durham. With a continued lack of transparency, the district has infuriated staff members and parents.

And an executive order aimed at reducing recidivism.

Join us for our news and political wrap-up of the week, on the next Due South.
