Education Roundup, 8/24/18

Hey all,

Some of the stuff I’ve been reading this week:

One of our candidates for Wake County School Board wrote this, on wanting the best for our kids:  https://www.facebook.com/notes/heather-scott-for-wake-county-board-of-education-district-1/i-want-them-to-have-the-best-opportunity/2577770145782128/

An interesting piece about some of the false assumptions underlying the push to privatize schools:  http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/education_law/2018/08/false-assumptions-about-private-schools-are-driving-public-school-funding-into-a-ditch.html

From an NC teacher, some information about the NCGA’s disastrous principal pay plan:  http://notesfromthechalkboard.com/2018/08/22/north-carolinas-principal-pay-plan-does-more-harm-than-good/

And Stu Egan wrote movingly about the many people it takes to make a school environment complete:  https://caffeinatedrage.com/2018/08/19/true-human-resources-people-make-schools-work-ask-the-ncga-to-invest-in-them-with-your-vote-in-november/
