Domecast, The News & Observer's weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Sept. 3-4.
This week brought lots of education news, with the release of schools' performance on standardized tests and remarks from Gov. Pat McCrory on teacher pay and turnover rates. We'll sort through the numbers -- and hear how McCrory answered questions from middle school students about his reading habits.
We also discuss a new passenger ferry route connecting Hatteras and Ocracoke Island and how regulatory reform issues are entering the governor's race.
We wrap up, as always, with Headliners of the Week. Jordan Schrader of The News & Observer hosts, and Craig Jarvis, Lynn Bonner, Colin Campbell and Will Doran round out the panel.
