State Budget: Mixed results for Public Education
The North Carolina General Assembly has voted to override Governor Bev Perdue's veto of the state budget. Last Friday the Governor vetoed the state spending plan. The Governor charged the Republican majority in the House and Senate of underfunding public education. A charge they vehemently deny. The recently adopted $20.2 billion spending plan is a mixed story for K-12 public education.
That according to the President of the North Carolina Association of Educators. Sheri Strickland is in Washington DC for the 150 annual National Education Association Representative Assembly. She spoke with David Hurand about the budget and the future of public education.
