• Teachers gather Saturday to rally support for education

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE - Teachers in Charlotte gathered Saturday to rally in support of public education.

    The Marshall Park rally was meant to send a message to state legislators in Raleigh as they prepare to meet for a short session next week.

    Teachers are not happy with what is being done to fix public education.

    They say lawmakers have the opportunity to fix the damage that has been done.

    “Without an educated populous, the state can’t go anywhere. Nobody’s gonna bring a job to North Carolina if our people aren’t educated,” said Charlie Smith with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Education Association.

    The Legislature is expected to look into ways to use incentives to attract teachers to under-performing schools.
