NC lawmakers prepare to hear from superintendents

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Members of the General Assembly are bringing in North Carolina school superintendents to speak about the effects of spending cuts in this year’s budget and what they’d like to have for next year.

The Legislature’s education oversight committee scheduled testimony from four superintendents at their meeting today in Raleigh.

House Speaker Thom Tills said months ago lawmakers would hold legislative hearings with superintendents in districts that lay off teachers to find out why they did so. But no meeting had been scheduled until now.

Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue and Republican leaders such as Tillis have been at odds over the extent the budget law had upon local school personnel reductions. The Legislature returns to work next month to adjust the second year of the two-year budget.
