Wilmington editorial: Restore education cuts

A new editorial in the Wilmington Star makes some common sense recommendations on public education. Here’s one of the best paragraphs:

“Our children are too precious for us to allow their education to suffer. No matter how Republicans couch it, the cuts that they and previous Democratic legislators have imposed are hurting the quality of our education system. Continued failure to fund education properly will bode ill for North Carolina’s economic future.”
