Charlotte Strives to Save Teacher Jobs

Citizens of Charlotte are striving valiantly to save the city’s teachers from losing their jobs. Charlotte Middle School is facing about $100 million in cuts, which are expected to result in the loss of hundreds of teachers. MeckFUTURE, a group that promotes advocacy for educational workers, started a letter writing campaign this week in the city, and they are hoping that parents and other citizens will contribute many heartfelt letters, telling personal stories about how the community’s teachers affect their lives.
