Using Your Teacher’s Voice

Today I spent an amazing day with teachers from all over NC. I am certain you heard them. They were in Raleigh to let legislators know that our schools are still drastically underfunded. It was not just about pay, although that is still a big issue. It was also about funding basic school supplies like textbooks, pencils and paper. Governor Cooper spoke about his version of the budget and Mark Jewel lead a group of teachers and friends of education who each described different problems teachers face everyday.  One thing I heard loud and clear is “We’ll remember in November.”
