I live in Indiana and I just got my NC Teacher's License. I was wondering if NC is making huge cuts in education. Are they closing schools and having layoffs?

Charlotte/Mecklenburg school board just voted to layoff 600 teachers. That is in ONE county in NC.

it is tough everywhere... all the districts around Charlotte are making huge cuts too, trying to figure out how to keep it all going.

AS A CURRENT STUDENT AT PROVIDENCE HIGH SCHOOL IN CMS: Last year, they cut some teachers(mostly based on seniority), but this year, they almost closed two schools.

However, they're laying off 600 as said above... but they're supposed to be for performance.. it really depends what subject you teach.

It sounds as if they have built two highschools they don't need. However at this point they have shelved the plans to close two older ones in order to fill these new ones due to the political issues it would cause for the politicians.
