    David, you have no idea what you are talking about. NCAE doesn't even represent a MAJORITY of the teachers in this state. It is an ineffective group and has been for years. There is no teachers union in NC.

    Now a powerful association: Look at the NC Troopers association, Starting pay pretty good, step raises, max pay in about 5 years for Troopers, making around 55 thousand. New cars every few years, thats a powerful group....looks like that might be changing though. Not bashing them, they have done good for themselves....look at those who have not, SBI, ALE, much lower pay

    NC Teachers assoc. is one of the most powerful and richest lobbying groups in NC!!

    LOL. thats a good one, you do realize not many teachers are members of that organization due to their ineffectiveness. Teachers pay has been frozen for the last several years, they don't get step increases, job cuts last years across the state....you need to recheck or rewrite your wikipedia info

    I'm almost shocked that he is not longer employed with the school system. Wait until the union hears about this!
