NC senators take issue on "walk-in" school action

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - Some Republican state senators are criticizing activity at a Wake County school next week for a day of action promoted by the North Carolina Association of Educators.

Association members and other educators are promoting a teacher "walk-in" Monday at public schools statewide. They want teachers to walk in together to work and parents and elected officials to visit schools. They also want to meet after school to talk about goals to improve schools.

Senate leader Phil Berger's office cited a request for volunteers at one Raleigh elementary school to substitute for teachers briefly while they meet as proof of a "politically-motivated one-hour strike."

NCAE President Rodney Ellis says the substitution may not be the best approach but defended the walk-in and says the group doesn't support a strike.
