I am a North Carolina public school teacher and am very passionate about the current issues in public education. I work in a state that, like many others, has leaders who are not supporting public schools. I truly believe that every teacher should become educated on the issues in their state and feel empowered to SPEAK UP. Write letters to General Assembly members, share information with family and friends, start a petition, and stay informed. I hope that passionate people will find this site and feel empowered to take a stand.
