Now more than ever, the POWER OF THE PEN (and computer) needs to be put into action. The fate of our fabulous teacher assistants is in jeopardy. The North Carolina state budget proposal cuts funding for teacher assistants except for Kindergarten and 1st Grade.
We need as many parents as possible need to write the following individuals to let our opinions be known and make these NC leaders understand what an important resource our teacher assistants are to our schools.
For your convenience, here is a sample letter with more information, but feel free to make your own. Also, here is a link to a petition a local PTA already started. Thank you for taking the time to be an advocate for our children and their education!
