The Raleigh News and Observer interviewed Terry Stoops about Wake County schools’ latest teacher turnover numbers. The N.C. Spin website and N.C. Senate Republicans promoted Stoops’ “Locker Room” blog entry on those turnover figures.
The Senate GOP and NCPoliticalNews.com highlighted Stoops’ related column warning people to beware of negative spin surrounding teacher resignations as the end of the current school year approaches. Senate Republicans also promoted Vice President for Research and Resident Scholar Roy Cordato‘s report urging lawmakers to end state targeted tax incentives.
The Kernersville News published Stoops’ column on poor public school student test results in history, geography, and civics, along with Director of Fiscal Policy Studies Sarah Curry‘s column on ways to help the state parks system cover its own expenses. The Beaufort Observer highlighted Director of Legal Studies Jon Guze‘s column on federal civil asset forfeiture. A News and Observer opinion column cited JLF support for efforts to move misdemeanor cases involving 16- and 17-year-old defendants from adult courts to the juvenile justice system.
