According to a recent report by the National Education Association, North Carolina teachers now make an average of $49,970 a year - placing them 39th in the country in terms of average teacher salary for 2017. The state is also about $10,000 behind the national average for teacher pay.

The post comes right before a rally planned for May 16, where thousands of teachers are expected to meet at the legislative building in Raleigh to raise awareness of teacher pay, overcrowding and the overall condition of schools.

Woodhouse also said his organization will release a new application Wednesday that will allow teachers and others to accurately check teacher pay.

"I think a lot of us started to see, 'well shoot, if West Virginia can do it, North Carolina can do it, ' " middle school Spanish teacher Sally Merryman told NPR.

"The hypocrisy is that they say they are supporting the students".

Several North Carolina school systems are shut down for the day, because of the number of teachers who have requested off to attend.

MS could be the next state to see teachers go on strike, according to analysis by the Brookings Institution.

Blake Farenthold Won't Repay $84000 Sexual Harassment Settlement
In December 2017, Farenthold promised to return the money but never did. In other words, he's now a lobbyist to lawmakers like his former self.

The post received more than 1,000 reactions over the weekend.

Governor Cooper plans to deliver remarks at the rally. "I, however, do not get paid for those days", he said.

Immanuel Jarvis, who has a child attending Clement Early College, said losing a school day will hurt black and Hispanic students the most, particularly those who are at risk of not doing well on end-of-year tests. "It's kids who look like me, the black ones, the brown ones, the ones who come from a single parent".

North Carolina teachers join the thousands of educators across the USA who have gone on strike this year, marching on Raleigh to demand higher wages and better funding for their classrooms Wednesday.

Charles Hellwig, chairman of the Wake County Republican Party, on Tuesday criticized the North Carolina Association of Educators.

"Please take advantage of that", Hellwig said.
