How long will we languish?

-43rd in the nation in per pupil spending with no plan to get to the national average..
-35 in the nation in teacher pay with no plan to get to the national average; NC teachers make approximately 12% less than they did in 2008 dollars.
-Saddled with continual rising healthcare costs.
- One in four North Carolina children live in poverty, and more than one in ten live in extreme poverty.
