This Combover Could Pay Two Teachers

Remember when Mark Johnson talked about how the teacher starting salary in NC was really good?

January 26, 2018:

During a question-and-answer session Thursday at the N.C. School Boards Association’s policy conference in Raleigh, Johnson said that the base state starting salary of $35,000 for North Carolina teachers was “good money” and “a lot of money” for people in their mid-20s.

January 26, 2018:

But that $35,000 mark for a starting salary if you’re in your early 20s, that is really good, especially in some of our rural districts.”

Makes one wonder what Johnson would say about the news of the following?

That combover is worth two new teachers here in North Carolina.

And before Johnson or someone claims that it is Trump’s right to spend that much money for a service that is debatably worth it, then that person would need to convince me that a beginning teacher in NC with a salary of $35K is not paying more federal income taxes than Trump has in the last few years.
