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.

Teachers say this year #ItsPersonal.
