State Board of Education Chair Bill Harrison has weighed in on the Republican budget on his blog and he is not too happy about it. The first two sentences make that clear.
The state budget passed by the General Assembly today is one of the most disappointing pieces of legislation I have seen in my 30 years in education. Lawmakers have clearly chosen to put politics before the needs of students and in making that choice, they have let all of North Carolina down.
Harrison is right. Read his whole take. It is worth your time.
