Leg­is­la­ture must step up on teacher pay

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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
