    I live in NC, and my husband works as a high school teacher here. (I teach in SC--we live in a border county.) I don't have the problems which are associated with North Carolina; however, I empathize with those in North Carolina.

    I don't know what's wrong with the people in Raleigh. It seems to me that teachers are our most valuable asset, for without us there wouldn't be doctors, lawyers, and those in charge of goverment would not know how to read the laws they try to write.

    North Carolina needs to wake up and realize that the treatment of its teachers is going to create a vast reduction of work force, something the state can hardly afford to do right now, with teachers being in short supply in some areas.

    Maybe the solution would be for all teachers to join the NCAE (North Carolina Association of Educators). Many people don't want to pay for the dues, so many teachers aren't a member of the organization. To be powerful, the teachers need a more powerful voice--strength in numbers.

    I encourage all North Carolina teachers to join the NCAE.
