At first, I was so happy to teach in
North Carolina. But we’ve fallen 41st in teacher pay — 44th in per-student spending,
and a lot of us even have to buy school supplies. Governor McCrory talks about
raising our pay, but he tried to cut education funding to its lowest budget
share in over 30 years. Like over 2,000 other teachers, I’m having to move to
another state so I can do what I love and make ends meet. Someone needs to fix this.
