I'll be working the Pink Slip Truth Tour tonight in Charlotte (see below) and would love to meet any of you attending the Tillis Town Hall. Could also use an extra hand to pass out brochures! Let me know if you'll be around.
Progress North Carolina's "Pink Slip Truth Tour" will make a stop today in Mecklenburg County, before NC House Speaker Thom Tillis’ town hall meeting in Matthews. Progress NC calls on Speaker Thom Tillis to stop blaming local superintendents and admit responsibility for gutting our children’s schools as his state budget slashes thousands of working teachers, TA’s, and classroom positions.
