Case in point – the 2013 North Carolina General Assembly, along with Governor Pat McCrory, has drastically (if there’s a word on the continuum more drastic than drastically, feel free to insert here) cut funding to the public school systems across the state.
An editorial by Glen Alpine educator Zeb Dickson submitted to the Morganton News-Herald January 29, 1957 explains it all:
In 1957 North Carolina Legislature will have to do something about raising the salaries of
teachers. The present critical situation…is a direct result of a short sighted policy on the part of the North Carolina legislature over the past 20 years. North Carolina
It all started back in 1934 when our Legislature thought they could sacrifice the welfare of the children of the state of
North Carolinas and pay us out of a depression by cutting teacher salaries to the bone. Our educational system has never fully recovered from that blow.
Check out the history. Please.
Catch of the day,
