NC Student Tax – $137,000 per classroom

The Class of 2023 was shortchanged $6,855 after the NC General Assembly slow walked restoration of per pupil expenditure to pre-Great Recession levels while slashing corporate income taxes and bragging about budget “surpluses” built on the backpacks of NC students.

Assuming a 20:1 student to teacher ratio, that’s $137,000 per CLASSROOM over the last 12 years.

What more would your local school have if the General Assembly prioritized promptly restoring per pupil expenditure instead of cutting corporate taxes?
