The outrage of ending North Carolina’s teaching fellows program

Chris Fitzsimon: When Republicans took control of the NC General Assembly in 2011, they ended the annual appropriation to the teaching fellows program, and the funding ended completely March 1. The Public School Forum recently issued a report summarizing the 30-year history of the teaching fellows, and it’s an impressive history indeed, making the decision by legislative leaders even more maddening. No one has explained why the funding was eliminated. No can dispute the effectiveness of the teaching fellows. It’s there in the numbers and the stories. That only leaves politics.
