As a Wake County teacher with 31 years of experience, I have a request of our legislature: Please take the raise back. I would make more money under last year’s system.
As the legislators insult, mistreat and disrespect us (their constituency), remember November is coming. Keep in mind what happened when the “keep the rich white guys” philosophy briefly took over the school board. (How about another “Where are they now” story?)
Teachers are professionals. We are trained, educated, experienced and passionate in what we do. Lawmakers are not, and boy is it obvious! Legislators are an example of the expression that “a little knowledge can be dangerous.” Their reign of terror is over. To the polls everyone!
