Not to be outdone by Durham Public Schools, Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools will cancel classes on May 16 to allow teachers to protest four consecutive years of compensation increases. According to WTVD,
Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools decided Thursday that schools will close May 16 when teachers across the state plan a walkout to lobby lawmakers in Raleigh with a list of demands.
Ah, the “list of demands” thing. That always works.
