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

Teachers forced to stop class to attend to special medical needs because there's no nurse on duty. Lyde says she hasn't seen a raise in years. But a recent snapshot of teacher pay put the state in 37th place nationally, and 39th place for per-pupil spending.

"I am a teacher".

- Charlotte-Mecklenburg teachers and the North Carolina Association of Educators held a town hall at the Morrison Regional Library in South Park this Monday in preparation for Wednesday's march at the state capitol.

Peacock: We were watching the teachers across the country that were doing the walk-outs. "This is the first time in North Carolina that teachers have come together as one group, and in one voice said that this is enough". Closing on Wednesday could mean the school would have to schedule a make-up day on a Saturday or even on Memorial Day, Brown said. It was not immediately clear if the 4% supplement the county pays teachers was included in that average. I teach science there.

For the past, probably 6 to 7 years, education has seen cuts, cuts, cuts. Our legislators need to do more to ensure we have excellent schools.

On average, teachers make more than most other North Carolinians.

We have changed our policies to provide free and reduced-price lunches and transportation assistance. That was years ago, many, many years ago. Therefore, the Alexander County Board of Education voted unanimously on May 8th to revise the current school calendar if a higher rate of absence for teachers was anticipated. He says he would have been teaching sooner but people discouraged him from the profession.

Dead, Others Injured in Explosion at Aliso Viejo Medical Building
One person died and at least three were injured after the explosion at the Aliso Viejo medical building. McWilliams said she saw two burned women staggering out of the building, covered in ash and soot.

Dennis: That's something I've never experienced. I want to share something with you.This is my 10th year teaching. There was mentor pay. Both sides suffered heavy casualties, and the historian Plutarch famously wrote, "If we are victorious in one more battle with the Romans, we shall be utterly ruined". Commentaries about education and teacher-led actions have dominated opinion pages in newspapers around the state. That new teachers are burned out because they don't have a mentor in their practice, and they don't have support? I get two weeks vacation here and a week there. I do. "Doesn't pay very much money". I think the index for cost for living we're like 29th now. To the North Carolina General Assembly, we will act to hold you accountable to the original intention of public charter schools. Teachers will advocate for better pay and working conditions.

Tuesday's legislative announcement lacked details about the teacher pay schedule, which has been oft-criticized by educators for its various plateaus.

I actually just recently got accepted into graduate school, so I'll be starting in the fall.

The NCAE has always been an ally of legislative Democrats and regarded with suspicion by the state's powerful Republican leaders. Cols said he won't be going to the rally, because he can't afford to take the day off and lose the pay.

Peacock: One of the things that the state did, was take away the incentive for having your master's degree. "And that really gave me confidence".

"I'm proud of the NCAE for taking a stand and organizing this day of advocacy". But they say it's quite the opposite - they're galvanized.
