Regarding North Carolina’s school voucher program, (“Moving forward with vouchers: What’s best for children”), The Herald-Sun, Aug. 18), here’s what we would like to hear our legislators say:
Vouchers are simply one more gear on the bulldozer the majority in the General Assembly is using to drive public education and the children in them over a cliff. Now that the majority has made teaching a lousy career option for the best and brightest, swept books and technology in the trash can, blown up class sizes, locked our youngest out of pre-school and sent teacher assistants packing, they pretend to care about “what’s best for students” by offering vouchers to attend private schools.
We are excited to announce our January membership meeting. This is a great opportunity to find out more about what we have planned for this year, and to learn how you can get more involved with our efforts. This January's meeting will highlight growing economic inequality in Durham, and will feature the efforts of our Economic Inequality Action Team to address the issue.
