Parents demand action on class-size chaos during special session

Bitterly cold temperatures did not deter North Carolina parents from turning out Saturday to urge legislators to repeal the unfunded class-size mandate.

They worry unless legislators address the class-size chaos during this week’s special session, many school districts will reduce “enhancement” courses such as art, music, PE, or technology.

Rep. Craig Horn, who co-chairs the House K-12 budget committee, has vowed his colleagues are working on “a reasonable solution.”

To check out the parents’ message to the General Assembly, scroll through some of the photos from the weekend rally below.
