Moral Monday Speaker: Lawmakers 'Wal-Martifying' Public Education

Jun 10, 2016

With the state’s next Moral Monday gathering scheduled to be held in Sylva this coming Monday, WCQS’s Davin Eldridge spoke with area school teacher and outspoken member of the North Carolina Association of Educators, John DeVille, who will be addressing the current state of public education as an event speaker. DeVille charges that since 2010, the Republican majority has taken a number of steps to dismantle the state’s public school system.


WCQS was unable to reach the North Carolina GOP for comment, however Republican Senator Jim Davis, of Macon County, did say that the Republican leadership not only raised funding for education since it took control in 2010, but that " spending more money does not necessarily equate to better education outcomes.."
