Bill seeks to limit teachers’ political activities

It would seem that a few members of the NCGA is afraid of the voices of our teachers, so they want to limit those voices.

Senate Bill 480 would disallow school employees from working on political campaigns during working hours, use the authority of his or her position to secure support or opposition for a political candidate, and use public funds to these ends.

U.S. SUPREME COURT BLOCKS REDISTRICTING PLAN
THAT PACKS BLACK VOTERS IN ALBAMA
*AND THIS HAS IMPLICATIONS FOR NORTH CAROLINA*
 

DURHAM, NC: Yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court opinion in the Alabama redistricting case supports the argument that the North Carolina State Conference of Branches of the NAACP has been making against North Carolina’s racially gerrymandered districts since they were first proposed in 2011. The Court held that packing black voters to meet a specific racial quota is constitutionally suspect, as was done in Alabama and in North Carolina. The Court remanded the case to the lower court for application of strict scrutiny. “The principles of law announced by the Court yesterday apply with equal force to North Carolina, mandating a reversal of the redistricting plans adopted here,” said Reverend Dr. William J. Barber, II.
