Have you read this yet? Teachers in North Carolina arrested for protesting. What were they protesting?
The lack of books. The lack of a school nurse. The lack of basics.
I’ve been telling you the story of Greenville, CA but it’s also the story of North Carolina. It’s the story everywhere in the United States where we allow basic education to wither. You can read more about the North Carolina school struggle
I’m sure you remember North Carolina from earlier this spring when their legislators seemed to have time and energy to fixated on restrooms in public schools. Maybe we can get them to fixated on other issues instead.
As of right now–we’ve logged in 4000 books. We have enough to start our library a new. Our Amazon wish list has been depleted and we are going to put in a chunk of time next week with 10 volunteers to unload boxes, catalog, see what more we need, etc. I won’t be putting up a new Amazon list right now.
I think North Carolina’s teachers and students might need us too. I have a hunch it’s an issue everywhere. But anyhow. I ask for nothing for us today. I thank you for your generosity. I will be posting updates as soon as I get back to Northern California. But I think now might be time to think of the other NC.
Peace to you and happy reading.
