Save Our Schools NC is dedicated to ending the class size chaos and fully fund our schools.
In a budget bill, the North Carolina General Assembly gave public schools a class size mandate for grades kindergarten through third. The caps are as follows Kindergarten 18 students, 1st grade 16 students, and 2nd – 3rd grade 17 students. With public pressure, the mandate was initially delayed and only partially rolled out in the school year 2017-2018.
Then in February, the NCGA passed HB 90. While it does provide funding for more teachers as well as an allotment for specialist teacher, it really only partially funds the issue.
