With N C teacher pay among the lowest in the nation, K-12 experts are reporting major teaching shortages.  The legislature, dominated by a super-majority of ultra-conservative GOPs in both houses, is doing its level best to harass teachers and drive students to charter schools and vouchers. Under the guise of 'reform,' more teachers and programs will be cut.'
