Regarding the Aug. 20 letter “ False credit” in which the writer stated, “Teachers will be laughing all the way to the bank” due to the raises awarded by the legislature: I assure the writer that my family member (entering the 15th year of teaching in North Carolina) finds the first raise in several years, projected to be $58 a month pretax, to be many things, but not a source of laughter. Laughable, maybe.

Nancy Devine, Cary
