The previous Education Budget under the Dems was $3.3 Billion under the Repubs it is $3.9 Billion. The shoe sure hurts when it is on the other foot. To all the naysayers had the Dems reached across the aisle in the past the Repubs would probably not have had to make such dramatic moves. But never having experienced that the Repubs followed their electoral mandate; majority rules.....

You do realize that the overall budget spending has very little to do with what that money is spent on. The Republicans have marked 50 million of that money for vouchers - which are just breaks on private school tuition for the rich. That money could have been spent elsewhere - like on the students who attend public school.

Not everyone who sends their children to private schools is rich. If the public schools did their jobs properly, then parents would feel less need to send their children to private schools. If the vouchers do pan out, I will see if it will enable me to send my child to a private school.

Your article goes into great detail as to what he is going to talk about in Southport - it sure would have been nice to have that same information regarding the contents of his "public safety announcement" to a high school!

Is there some reason why this article does not say where in Southport he will be?

thumbing his nose at schools & teachers. Sigh.

To host our Governor to the area.
With unemployment rising (again) I hope he has a huge economic announcement to make. The DAK employees are now entering the unemployment stream if memory serves em correctly and brunsick county needs a boost


He is really going to show his face at a public school? I would imagine he would get a much better reception at a private school in the area. I hope he is booed out of the building and shunned by staff. This man and his republican counterparts are a disgrace to NC.
