As North Carolina faces job loss of over 23,000 educators in the next
school year, the state continues its free fall into the nation’s
educational cellar. Join NCAE members from all over North Carolina to speak out with one voice about the long-term devastation to our public schools and our communities North Carolina was once a leader in sustained, meaningful investment in public education. Neglect of our public schools through recent budget cuts have already added burden to North Carolina’s economic recovery.
Additional cuts will cause even greater damage and only prolong the
recovery process. The question facing state lawmakers is not a question of capacity, but a question of political will. If sufficient will exists to realign budget priorities and restore its commitment to public education, North Carolina can withstand the present economic storm and hasten its own recovery. If the will to make those decisions is lacking, the damage inflicted already may begin a much longer period of decline.
NCAE calls on budget writers to take a balanced approach to
constructing a budget. Additional proposed cuts in public education
correlate strongly to areas of high poverty in the state, exacerbating
the worst conditions in areas least capable of rapid recovery.

Join NCAE as we rally with ONE VOICE!

The politicians in Raleigh do not care about Public School Education. They do not care about the students or the teachers. NC has now dropped to 46th in the country in per-pupil spending and NC is 45th in teachers' salaries!!! These politicians still want to force teachers and pupils to pay. Here is the Raleigh Politicians' Plan:

CUT 1.2 milliom in funding to k-12 education while cobbling together 2 billion in tax reductions and protecting $2 billion in tax loopholes for special interest groups.

FIRE 20,000 educators across the state, including as many as 7,000 teachers and 8,000 teacher assistants.

SLASH salaries of all teachers by 5 to 10 %.

SCRAP the teacher salary schedule, giving control of salaries to county superintendents - who are political appointees.
One Voice Rally
