Remember the big teacher march and rally last May that brought more than 19,000 educators to downtown Raleigh to demand better pay and increased funding for public schools?
Round 2 is planned for May 1.
According to educators, Mark Jewell, president of the N.C. Association of Educators (NCAE), asked teachers to take a personal day May 1 to come to Raleigh for a day of action around K-12 issues.
Jewell made the request during the NCAE’s annual convention, which took place in Raleigh Friday and Saturday.
Jewell could not be reached for comment Saturday evening.
But a portion on of his message to teachers was posted and shared on educators’ Facebook pages.
