NCAE Releases New 'Fund Schools First' Report Showing Negative Trends in Education
Teachers and education advocates from across North Carolina rallied last weekend in the state capitol, protesting the severe cuts to education funding proposed by the Republican majority in the General Assembly.
Delegates from the Macon County chapter of the North Carolina Association of Educators joined over 1,200 NCAE members from every district in the state to rally in downtown Raleigh to raise public awareness about the pending threat major budget cuts to education pose for the future of North Carolina. The NCAE is calling for the General Assembly to make a major philosophical shift and make education a higher priority in the upcoming budget. The March 18 rally was planned as part of the annual meeting of NCAE delegates.
