CORRECTION: The Wake Dems Weekly Update of April 22, 2017, incorrectly portrayed pro-public school advocates as opposing HB 13. Parents all over the state are supporting the bill in order to save music, art, and PE teaching positions and preserve school district flexibility over class sizes.
We have further good news to report: not only was the bill referred to the Senate Education Committee on Friday, but it is on the agenda for tonight's meeting.
Here are the details:
Senate Education Committee Hearing on HB 13
Tonight, Monday, April 24th
Room 544, Legislative Office Building (northeast corner of Lane and Salisbury Streets, Raleigh)
The News & Observer reported Wake County schools will need "$26 million more and [will have to hire] 460 extra teachers" if HB 13 does not pass.
