More than 6,300 education jobs have been eliminated to date in North Carolina schools, according to new data released Wednesday, Aug. 31, by the state Department of Public Instruction.
“This is shameful,” Rep. Haire said. “Our children only have one chance at an education and we are diminishing their opportunities when we take away their teachers and their teacher assistants. I voted against this awful plan because I worried it would devastate our schools. This report shows the harm that it has already caused.”
