Nine days and counting down! Educators get ready for major march on the General Assembly

If you missed it over the weekend, be sure to listen to our extended interview with N.C. Association of Educators President Mark Jewell as we discusses the May 1st teachers rally planned for Raleigh.

More than twenty school districts including some of the state’s largest – Wake County and Charlotte-Mecklenburg – will be closed that day because of the number of teachers who plan on attending this day of action.

Teachers say this year #ItsPersonal.
