Mary Curtis: March For Students and Rally For Respect

CHARLOTTE, NC –On the first day of the N.C. legislature’s short session, more than 15,000 teachers will be heading to Raleigh in an action they are calling the March for Students and Rally for Respect. Unlike teacher walkouts in other states, notably West Virginia, North Carolina’s action will be one day only – but teachers taking part hope it won’t end there. (Mary Curtis)

What are some of the reasons for the march?

How does NC rate with other districts around the country?

How are schools districts reacting?

What are the politics?

Will the short session be taking up these issues?
