I am donating all profits from the sale of this track to the organizations involved in the following story to help fight for our students, teachers, and everyone supporting our children in the public school system.
After several attempts to meet with Governor McCrory to discuss the state of education in NC, members of the group Organize 20 20 marched 23 miles to the Governor's Mansion to get his attention. When they arrived, the building was locked (during business hours), and Governor McCrory yet again refused to meet with them. The group was made up of students, teachers, and other public school system workers. In protest, they blocked the intersection outside the mansion with a human chain, and 14 people were arrested.
This story made my blood boil; what could be controversial about discussing education? Our students deserve the very best, not the very worst. Is it about race? Is it about class? I just don't understand, and it's time to change.
I won't go over the many worrying statistics surrounding NC education here, but instead point you to the Organize 2020 website here for more info:http://www.organize2020.com/mission/
