North Carolina Teachers Say Conditions in Schools Are 'Unacceptable'


August 29, 2018

North Carolina teachers are starting the 2018-19 school year with a message to legislators: "Reverse the harmful course" the state is taking on education.

On Friday, dozens of North Carolina teachers who are members of the group Red4EdNC held press conferences at seven locations across the state. They criticized large class sizes across the state, dilapidated classrooms and school buildings, and low teacher salaries. (N.C. teachers earn an average of $49,970, according to 2016-17 salary data from the National Education Association. The national average teacher salary that year was $59,660.)
