It’s rather hard to be a teacher in North Carolina this year.
It has been three years since a budget has been passed by an NCGA that is bent against public education.
We have a Lt. Governor who has a bogus task force that is investigating “indoctrination” based on circumstantial and biased “evidence.”
Some schools have seen more loaded guns in their classrooms than they have seen social workers for their students in need.
Supposedly some of us are teaching a theory that is taught to third year law students because it’s that complicated that is being used to fuel a false narrative.
And there is still one hell of a shortage of people in public education.
And there’s this thing called the LEANDRO decision which no one in DPI seems to be openly advocating for after a court-ordered demand to put its recommendations into fruition.
But damn, they sure got some big raises.
There is a link in that report which talks of the actual raises given to many of Truitt’s hires.
One person received a raise of over $45,000 per year – a %61.5 raise.
Yep. It’s a slap in the face.
