RALEIGH–Speaking to the a education oversight committee, Lee County Schools’ Superintendent Jeff Moss said he has lost about 45 positions and has had to remove some social workers and other support positions. He said,”we’ve reached the limit. We do want to partner with you. You can’t do it alone. We can’t do it alone.” According to WRAL, Moss, along with Superintendents from Alleghany, Jones, and Winston-Salem/Forsyth counties, told the committee that numbers are crucial, but added that “we can’t forget the reason we are here is because an educator helped us get where we are.” Moss said our teachers will continue to do everything they can. It’s in their blood….but you can only do so much before your creativity and innovativeness runs out.” House Speaker Tom Tillis said months ago lawmakers would hold legislative hearings with superintendents in districts that lay off teachers to find out why they did so. But no meeting had been scheduled until the recent one.
