SURVEY SAYS…: Survey Refutes Media and Teacher Union Spin

If you believe that social or mainstream media offer accurate representations of reality, you may be surprised to hear that most teachers in North Carolina are content with the working conditions in their schools. After all, the North Carolina Association of Educators and allied public school advocacy organizations insist that our public schools are in a crisis produced by Republican lawmakers who, in the words of one long-time teacher union activist, “seek to attack or even dismantle public education for financial or cultural gain.”


The North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions Survey tells a much different story.
