As a former teacher, I was angry about the difference in "facts" from the teachers union and from the N.C. Legislature. I looked deeper into the current sound bites and protests and found in-depth explanations of new education laws and budgets at http://www.nchouse116.com.
This site provides links to original documents, including the actual laws that very much support good teachers, focus on excellence in the classroom and show the increase in education spending — quite different from current headlines and your readers' letters.
It also gives insight into the huge education debt and unemployment insurance mismanagement, among many other issues, inherited by the Republicans.
