How much have you, or a teacher in your life, sacrificed to NC classrooms in lost wages compared to the purchasing power of the salary schedule in the year they “signed up” for or was once offered in 2007-08 before the Great Recession?
Derek Scott and I partnered on a project to help folks quantify their sacrifice in a way they’ve known to be true, but haven’t yet crunched the numbers.
The calculator at www.NCTeacherTax.com generates the gap between what a teacher thought they would be paid vs. what they were actually paid.
Explore the site, and share with those in your network and with your NC General Assembly representatives: https://www.ncleg.gov/FindYourLegislators
