NC Lawmakers are cutting school funding. It's time to put a stop to it.
Our teachers are already some of the lowest paid teachers in the country - and now lawmakers are doing more to hurt our instructors. There are no longer incentives for teachers that have graduate degrees - those raises have been cut. Tenure, which is designed to keep teachers from being fired arbitrarily, no longer exists.
Teachers are already paid so little, that some of them qualify for medicaid.
Instructors have few assistants in the already crowded classooms. Our students are performing poorly, and performance will only decrease. We must invest in teachers and our children.
Please tell NC Lawmakers to stop dismantling our education system and start investing in the future.
