More ENC Schools Join Growing List Of Districts Closing May 16

Many teachers in Southeastern North Carolina make less than the state average for teacher salaries

While Congressman Mark Walker is a federal lawmaker, he's certainly paying attention to what's going on with teachers at the state level.

Teachers from 20 school districts across the state plan to strike, a demonstration that will affect around 700,000 North Carolina students.

A year ago the North Carolina state assembly approved $2.5 million in cuts to education funding, including layoffs and the elimination of vacant positions in low-income and low-performing school districts.

North Carolina teachers did not organize a walkout when the state ranked worse for teacher pay under Democratic leadership, Woodhouse said.

"I think a lot of us started to see, 'well shoot, if West Virginia can do it, North Carolina can do it, ' " middle school Spanish teacher Sally Merryman told NPR.

Brody says he's saying this because he "doesn't want Union County schools and for that matter, all North Carolina school systems, to turn into Chicago".

Woodhouse also said his organization will release a new application Wednesday that will allow teachers and others to accurately check teacher pay. "They're walking out of the classroom tomorrow after the largest teacher pay raises in history were passed by Republicans".

"The hypocrisy is that they say they are supporting the students".

So if that doesn't highlight just how pivotal Game 2 is for James and the Cavs on Tuesday night, I don't know what else will. After surviving the testy Milwaukee Bucks in seven games they quickly dispatched the much-hyped Philadelphia 76ers in five.

A Durham teacher accused the rally's organizers of using students as "pawns" to push their agenda.

"The teacher union could've chosen to do this in a few weeks when school is out".

Over 1,000 people shared Cols' lengthy post, which stated how much he loved and respected his job before revealing a photo of his latest paycheck of $1,715.81, which can be calculated out as $53 a day. Many of them plan to take part in the rally. "I do not support the movement especially on the backs of our students". All high school students scheduled to take AP exams that day will still need to report to East Taylorsville Baptist Church by 8:00 a.m. They will join about 15,000 teachers expected to attend. "If Oklahoma can do it, North Carolina can do it". "That's what the NCAE is". "It's for parents who might need a little help on a day where we've been unfairly burdened".
