Legislature must step up on teacher pay
In response to “Raises? Supplies? What teachers, state workers want in NC budget talks” (Jan. 30): A teacher is one of the most important influences in our children’s lifetime. It is unthinkable that these women and men have to purchase any supplies to educate our students.
Taxpayers in our state should be outraged that our teachers make the salaries they make and have to supply the tools to educate our children. We can
not afford to continue to lose some of our best teachers. Our legislature needs to step up. – Barbara Bell Kerr, Char
