The Last Summer of Public Schools

This is it, folks, the last summer of public schools in North Carolina.

No, I don’t mean there’s no more summer school to come. I mean that if NCGA leadership is allowed to continue, unbridled, down their current path we won’t have public schools to kick around anymore. They won’t exist.

Saving rural NC as simple as one, two, three

Great article in this week's Indy by Jeffery Billman, called What's Driving the NC Senate's Animus Towards the State's Metros? BIllman explores possible reasons our state Senate Republicans dislikes our state's cities. I don't know about you, but I have never heard an urban politician campaign on hurting our urban environments, but to hear what is happening in NCGA, one would think there was a cabal of cities out to destroy the countryside. However, the greatest harm to our rural brethren has come from the Senate Republicans themselves. (I've put a link at the bottom of this piece. Read his article for more.)
