Best budget quote of the day

Nora Carr, chief of staff for the Guilford County Schools told Mark Binker of the Greensboro News-Record:

“Simply adding more instructional days while cutting funds for textbooks, classroom supplies, teacher professional development, teacher assistants, and other critical resources for schools is a funny way to ‘reform’ public schools.”

Amen, Nora.

    And when do the teachers perform the tasks scheduled for the workdays?

    They’re increasing workdays without raising the budget by forcing teachers to work five unpaid days. It’s yet another Republican attack on govt. employees pretending to be pro-education.

    They should stop the posturing and leave the micromanagement to the local systems.
