As I explained earlier, NC teachers have a contract, signed at the beginning of each year for only one year of service. They are paid 10 months and laid off for 2 months each year, without pay. Most get paid 12 times per year only by allowing the state to hold their money and distribute their pay over 12 months instead of 10. One of the reasons a tenured teacher can be dismissed is because their position is not funded or that their position is no longer budgeted.. Do they have a recourse? Not with the school system. What makes it crazy is that the teacher assistants are great bang for the buck because of their low pay.
That within itself shows that efficiency and cost effectiveness is not the republican goal.
<quoted text>So, how and where did you arrive at the firing of 7500 teachers? Will they not have recourse from that? Do they not have a contract with the state? I have a couple friends that are teachers neither of them have said they are worried about their jobs. Exactly, where will the job loss come from, you know I would love to check your resources?
