As legislators begin their first full week of work in Raleigh, some of North Carolina’s long-term educators are voicing concerns about proposed budget cuts.

Dr. Bill Harrison, chairman of the State Board of Education [1], says a 10 percent budget cut would mean more crowded classrooms statewide, and the loss of more than 5,300 teachers.

Harrison recently told NC Policy Watch’s News & Views:

“It’s in some ways irresponsible and cavalier just to say cut it, cut it, cut it.”
