Instead of going to school that day, thousands of teachers plan to attend a rally in Raleigh to protest their pay and working conditions. Commentaries about education and teacher-led actions have dominated opinion pages in newspapers around the state.
Educators say they will focus on a host of public education issues Wednesday-including overall school funding, classroom supplies, infrastructure, and, of course, teacher pay.

As many as 80 schools will be closed on Wednesday from at least 37 school districts, including some of the state's largest like Wake, Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Guilford County. It also would make them happier, which is good for everyone, including our children.
Tammy Sawyer, a spokeswoman for the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools, indicated a few teachers from the district are planning to attend the rally, but ECPPS officials aren't expecting any disruption to the school day. It's one thing for CMS Superintendent Clayton Wilcox and the school board to voice their support for employees. But many teachers contend the pay is still too low. For instance, a teacher with five years experience and a bachelor's degree earns a base salary of $38,300, while a teacher with 15 years experience with the same and a bachelor's degree earns a base salary of $45,550. The possibility of this protest and assembly making any sort of desired impact on legislators appears remote.
Senator Jeff Tarte from Cornelius says he will be meeting with several teachers who travel to Raleigh this week. There could be a semantic argument that Wednesday's presentation by teachers would be "union activity".
