Interesting how we’re now learning that the $300 million in federal money North Carolina is receiving to save teacher jobs might not be used to save teacher jobs. Why? The massive layoffs many school districts feared haven’t materialized.
Officials from the governor’s office spent yesterday trying to figure out how the money could be spent. As usual, there was no shortage of answers. The idiocy in this scenario is that the money needs to be spent — even when the need is different than originally envisioned.
With next year’s budget deficit projected to be around $3 billion is it too much to expect restraint and forethought? Ever wonder why our national debt is $13.3 trillion.
