Bill Mercer: N.C. not an option

N.C. not an option

My daughter, who has a master’s degree in a specialized teaching field, visited Durham over the weekend. She and her husband had long thought about retiring or just moving to North Carolina. She read the N.C. legislature’s bills concerning teachers and firmly announced no way she would move to this anti-education state. My niece also was in town the week prior and said plans to move here would no longer be an option.

Two professionals who will look elsewhere. Congratulations Republicans!
