NC teachers’ group getting behind school “walk in”

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Public school teachers previously talking about a walkout next month to protest education policies by the North Carolina legislature are now urging solidarity behind what they call a more positive job action.

The North Carolina Association of Educators and some teachers behind the walkout idea on Thursday promoted a “walk in” Nov. 4 they hope will attract parents and elected officials to schools.

The association and individual teachers urged colleagues to wear red that day. They want the community to visit their schools to see what’s happening.

The association had not endorsed the walkouts. But President Rodney Ellis says he can understand why teachers are fed up with flat salaries, the end of job-protecting rules and a new taxpayer-funded program for some children to attend private schools.
