Teachers critical of Gov. McCrory to issue ‘report card’

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s traditional school year is over, so some teachers say it’s time Gov. Pat McCrory gets graded for his performance on public education and other issues.

A group called Organize 2020 scheduled a news conference Friday on the grounds of the old Capitol building, where McCrory keeps his office. The group says it will release a “report card” on McCrory’s efforts related to students and other topics that’s expected to include poor or failing grades.

McCrory and fellow Republicans counter that they’ve done a good job raising teacher salaries the past two years and overall public school spending.

Organize 2020 is a caucus within the North Carolina Association of Educators. Caucus members plan next week to march over two days to Raleigh to try to meet with the governor.
