Stand up for N.C. educators

Written by 

A “Stand Up for Education” rally will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, on the front lawn of the Haywood County historic courthouse.

The event will express appreciation for teachers, support for public education and dissatisfaction with recent legislation enacted by N.C. General Assembly that affects teacher pay and public education funding.

Featured speakers include N.C. Senate Minority leader Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe, who chairs the Senate Education Committee; N.C. Rep. Joe Sam Queen, D-Waynesville; and Haywood County Commissioner Bill Upton, a former school superintendent.

The Haywood County Democratic Party, Public Schools First N.C. and the N.C. Association of Educators are organizing the event, but all are welcome. Attendees are encouraged to make signs and wear red.
