The Network for Public Education  endorsed Wiley Nickel for the Dist.16 seat in the No. Carolina Senate. Nickel supports legislation to reduce class sizes, and also to pay for it. He sees the “class size chaos” that was created by the No.Carolina legislature when they mandated reduced class sizes without providing additional funding for additional teachers. He supports a moratorium on charter schools, and “empowering local school boards with the ability to create charters and keep them under their governance, & for “phasing out school vouchers for private schools--ensuring that existing private schools receiving public voucher funds meet the same accountability and performance standards as public schools. Please spread the word & help get people out to the polls to vote for Wiley Nickel a strong supporter of No Carolina’s teachers and public schools!
