Bill to eliminate class size limits in public schools moves forward in N.C. General Assembly

The Senate Education Committee today approved legislation (SB 374) to eliminate class-size restrictions in public schools. Instead, the bill would give financial discretion to each school district in spending state funds for teacher positions. The legislation now moves to the Senate Appropriations Committee, where Sen. Tom Apodaca, Republican of Henderson County, is a member. The N.C. School Boards Association is lobbying in support of the bill, but it is opposed by the N.C. Association of Educators. Apodaca and Sen. Ralph Hise of Spruce Pine are co-sponsors of the bill.

    In the race to the bottom, Raleigh Republicans are leading the way. Mississippi’s new motto is “thank God for North Carolina!” They must be relieved to finally not be at the bottom of the educational aspirations of the whole country.
