North Carolina school districts closing for teacher protest

RALEIGH, N.C. — Three of North Carolina’s largest school districts now plan to shut down for one day next week and some smaller districts plan to do the same, as thousands of teachers are expected to rally for better working conditions and education funding.

The Wake County Public School System said Monday it will close on May 16 after about a quarter of the 10,000 teachers employed in and around the state’s capital city asked for the day off to participate in the rally. The 160,000 students in the state’s largest school district won’t have to make up the class time.
