Amanda Garrison is the communications director for Burke County's chapter of the North Carolina Educator's Association. She has been teaching for 4 years and has a fiery passion for the profession, so much that she is standing up to recent measures enacted by the state against public education. We talk about the challenges of teaching, standardized testing, teacher pay, charter schools, and the recent endorsement of Tim Barnsback by the NCAE. During the intro we address our use of "curse words", a frequent criticism of our show.
Local music provided by Samosely with the songs "On The Contrary" and "Goes Without Saying".
