3/4 cent sales tax increase

Just as President Johnson "declared war" on litter, Bev is doing the same with the education system in NC. It doesn't matter how much additional funding is thrown at the system. Until parents get involved in the education of their children, we'll continue to suffer from poor test scores and high dropout rates.

Sadly, when a school system receives an influx of cash, the first thing they do is go out and spend it. Just as an extra $5 in a person's pocket will burn a hole in it, the school systems operate in the same manner.

Bev screams loudly about what a disservice the Legislature did to the education system when they let the old (temporary) tax expire. Yet the Legislature ADDED teaching jobs.
