  • Hundreds rally for school class-size bill HB13

    Hundreds rallied at Halifax Mall in Raleigh urging the NC Senate to pass House Bill 13 Wednesday, April 19, 2017. School districts around the state say arts and PE programs are at risk because they lost their flexibility to fund them when state legislators lowered class sizes for kindergarten through third grade. School officials say HB13 would allow them to save arts and PE classes.

  • Parents campaign to urge lawmakers for K-3 class size flexibility

    Combs Elementary School PTA volunteers talk with parents as they wait in carpool line Monday, Dec. 4, 2017 near the school. Volunteers were urging parents to ask state legislators to give school districts flexibility on the new K-3 class sizes going into effect in July. The smaller class sizes could cost school districts problems such as losing art and music classrooms and forcing classes to share rooms.
