If you think Republican legislators aren't scared to death of public school teachers and parents, think again. That's why they're planning to wrap up the short session "no later than June 10," which just happens to be the last day of classes in all of North Carolina's public schools (except for year round schools). Yes, legislators will be scurrying out of Raleigh like rats before they risk the ire of few hundred thousand pissed off educators.
Tom Tillis, of course, is totally irrelevant because of his US Senate bid, and Pat McCrory totally irrelevant because he is Pat McCrory. That leaves only two people who matter: Art Pope and Phil Berger, in that order. Neither man gives a flying flip about public schools or teachers, and neither has a plan to address the growing unrest in the teachers' ranks.
It's going to get ugly.
