press release

Teaching assistants in North Carolina may be saved from cuts, EducationCrossing finds 6,000 assistant jobs.

June 01, 2011   |  PDF version  PDF version

Pasadena, CA — Teaching assistants in North Carolina facing the axe may be saved by a bill proposed by Republican leaders.

The proposed new budget of $19.7 billion eliminates most of the cuts to teacher assistant jobs that were put forward in both the House and Senate proposals. But Governor Beverly Perdue is not enthusiastic about the new proposals and has called it a shell game that does not really change the facts on the ground.

The school districts will be getting $429 million less in funding this school year. Perdue is saying that the cuts are inevitable. But most of the tough decisions on who should be laid off are being made at the local level.

The teaching assistants that will be laid off under the original plan are those working in classrooms for grades 1 through 3. The supporters of this plan say that laying off 13,000 teaching assistants in these elementary classrooms will mean that teachers will not have to be laid off. Teaching assistants and their supporters say that they are needed to help the weaker students cope with the curriculum and ensure that nobody falls through the crack.

EducationCrossing, a job aggregator site focusing only on jobs in the education sector, has been able to find almost 6,000 teaching assistant jobs across the country.
