In a report that came out on Thursday, the state’s largest school district, Wake County, revealed that as many as 600 public school teachers have left the profession this year. These are 600 professional educators in the state’s largest school district that have found the teaching conditions to be so insufferable that they chose to remove themselves from the classroom even before the school year came to an end. This number is a 41% increase from the previous year and represents a growing trend of educators gradually leaving the state for greener pastures. With the state unlikely to boost teaching salaries for the 2014-2015 school year, many in the Tar Heel State expect to see teachers not only leave Wake County but leave the state entirely for better professional opportunities.
Here is the explanation of how the right infects the national conversation with their conspiracy theories:
1). This law is benefitting millions of people.
2). Republicans can’t mount a rational opposition to the law, so they have been reduced to looking like whiners.
3). The GOP put all of their eggs in the repeal Obamacare basket, and they have no backup plan.
PoliticusUSA was founded in February of 2008 by Jason Easley. Jason had a vision of a liberal and independent news site which would offer a mix politics and opinion in an unfiltered environment, not beholden to any specific political or media agenda. PoliticusUSA is by design accessible to all levels of readers. Whether you are a casual follower of current events or a policy wonk, there is something here at PoliticusUSA for you.
“If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a Liberal.” ~J.F.K.
In other words, if you are to the left of Ayn Rand Tea Party Social Darwinism, if you think we have some responsibility for the poor, the elderly, the veterans, the disabled, and the vulnerable in society, welcome to PoliticusUSA.
