The reality of not having a state budget

From The Insider: “Lawmakers’ decision to go home Tuesday without agreeing on a budget may have forced a new school to delay opening until 2022. The N.C. School of Science and Mathematics Morganton campus was set to open in August 2021 and offer a residential program to 300 high school juniors and seniors. But to open, the school needs the allotted $3.39 million for operational costs in the state’s budget vetoed by Gov. Roy Cooper.

There will be a hearing in the Leandro case today at the Wake County Courthouse, at 10am in courtroom 10A. EdNC’s Alex Granados will be there. Follow him on Twitter @agranadoster.

State Superintendent Mark Johnson will visit Harold E. Winkler Middle School in Concord today, Tuesday January 21.  He will be meeting with teachers, staff and students to discuss school safety.
