Teachers sound off on stagnant wages, tenure, lack of resources (Audio)

Earlier this week, Policy Watch education reporter Lindsay Wagner reported on the statewide teacher walk-in, showcasing the frustration of some North Carolina educators over the current level of legislative support for public education.

This weekend we’ll hear from a few more of those teachers, who join us on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon.

If you are an educator with a story to tell,  be sure check out NC Policy Watch’s new online feature, Your Soapbox.  Over the next few months we will be collecting more stories about working on the front lines of public education in North Carolina.
