Superior Court Judge David Lee has signed an order to state lawmakers essentially forcing them to provide the necessary funding for public schools based on the Leandro decision of 1997. As a parent, educator and potential member of the New Hanover County Board of Education, I implore our legislators to get past the partisan divide and provide our public schools with the funding they need to serve ALL children. Not only are you constitutionally mandated to provide that funding , now a court has ruled that you must. DO IT!
It’s not about the R or the D, it’s about the E! Education!
