More than 50 business leaders filed a petition this week urging the North Carolina Supreme Council to uphold a judge’s order to fund Leandro’s plan.
And that’s good. But they could have done it earlier.
Even more egregious is the fact that not a single legislator from Berger’s own political party ever raised a voice in the public ear for public schools.
Over the past ten years, Senator Phil Berger has led as many attacks on public schools and the people who work in them as any lawmaker in the country.
1. Paying the teacher It is preserved Much below the national average
2. Removal of due process rights
3. Removed inequalities in payment for higher education
4. Pensioner health benefits have been removed for new teachers
5. Push for merit pay and bonuses
6. Cancellation of payment for years of service
7. Health insurance and benefits
8. Attacks on teachers’ advocacy groups (NCAE)
9. Reorganization and weakening of the Department of Public Education
10. Less money per student Adjusted for inflation
11. Remove restrictions on class sizes
12. School grading system
13. Cutting teacher’s assistants
14. Read to achieve
15. Educational Savings Accounts
16. Possible grants
17. Charter of schools
18. Innovative school districts
19. Reduction of candidate teachers in colleges
20. Liquidation and rethinking of the scholarship program
21. Frozen salaries for 15-24 years
22. Ignorance of the decision LEANDRO
23. Budget for three years
Can’t remember the last time a NC GOP legislator has publicly spoken out against what Phil Berger has done to public education in North Carolina. And despite what they may argue privately, when they had the chance to publicly tell North Carolinians that they would work for public schools, they didn’t go against Sen. Phil Berger.
On behalf of the children.
This is complicity.
