Wake NCAE is urging teachers to hold a walk-in and not a walk-out on Nov. 4 in response to the issues facing the state’s public schools.
As noted in today’s article, Wake NCAE President Larry Nilles said he’s proud of the work done by organizers of the proposed statewide teacher walk-out. But Nilles said that actually holding the walk-out would antagonize parents. Instead, he said holding a walk-in and meeting with the public after school would do more to transform public schools.
“We are proud of the work that the organizers of the Nov. 4 walk-out have done,” Nilles told Wake County school board members on Tuesday. “They drew attention to the frustrations of public school employees and the damage done to public schools during the 2013 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.”
