From an Alamance Burlington School System board member on teacher pay in North Carolina:

“We keep cutting, we’re going to hope we’re 48th,” board member Pam Thompson said.

Board members had discussed the possibility of getting rid of $100,000 that’s mandated to teach CPR to eighth-graders.

“Maybe we don’t need to buy those dummies (for CPR),” Thompson quipped. “We’ll just borrow some of the legislators.”

Note the bulk of the story is Alamance County commissioners possibly excluding Superintendent Lillie Cox from budget discussions. Cox submitted her $34.5 million budget to County Manager Craig Honeycutt, who told her they’d be in touch.
