The brilliant and usually correct afternoon multimodal-time host from WWNC 570-AM, Pete Kaliner, was running an ad earlier today about North Carolina being a teacher importer. He said that ran contrary to claims of education activists that teachers are relatively under-compensated. What Kaliner overlooked is that we need more math and science teachers. The ones we’re getting can’t do enough math to know if a salary will cover rent, bills, groceries, out-of-pocket teacher expenses, etc.
