Area Public Schools Closing for Teacher Rally

Apr 30, 2019

New Hanover and Brunswick County Schools close tomorrow for the North Carolina Association of Educators’ Day of Action. Pender County Schools remain open – despite closing last year.  As WHQR reports, it’s the second year the two counties have closed schools while staff rally at the General Assembly. 

North Carolina’s public school teachers could soon be faced with a big choice: pay hikes, or job protection. State senators are proposing a budget that would raise experienced educators’ salaries in exchange for what they’re calling “tenure rights.” And navigating such a choice can be confusing. Which is why the local division of the North Carolina Association of Educators—or NCAE—is hosting what they’re billing as an informational rally in Wilmington, tomorrow.

Editor's note:  This report was corrected to reflect the change of terminology regarding the NCAE from "union" to "association", as North Carolina does not have a teachers' union.
