Vol.#73: “Turn Out for What?” #ItsOnNov4

October has completely run away from me. A new school, a new curriculum, a new role as department chair, a mentor training program, leading Professional Development sessions and a conference presentation… I completely neglected the “Volumes”.

However, I couldn’t let this week get away without saying my (predictable) piece for getting out there to vote this Tuesday.

In honor of World Teacher Day on October 5th, WalletHub researched the 50 states and DC and ranked them in order of the best and worst states for teachers. Guess who’s dead last at #51? Our legislation denies this reality, even reporting skewed numbers to try to downplay the 25% increase in teacher resignations this past year from the year prior.

Voting is always important. But this Tuesday, it’s crucial for our teachers and the North Carolinian children they serve.

The NCAE website has a form where one can enter his or her address and  receive a list of candidates endorsed by the North Carolina Association of Educators for that region here at ncaevotes.org.  (Spoiler alert: It’s not Thom Tillis)  #ItsOnNov4

What are you turning out for?
