In North Carolina, Teacher Protest Exposes Rural-Urban Divide
May 16, 12:00 AM
Roughly two-thirds of North Carolina’s children will be out of school Wednesday after districts announced closures to accommodate thousands of teachers’ requests for the day off to march on the state Capitol in support of increased school funding. The districts that canceled class, affecting nearly one million students, are concentrated in the state’s urban and suburban counties, while most of the state’s 100 counties are rural and their school districts will be open.
