SANFORD–The courthouse lawn was the setting for the Our Kids aren’t Cattle Tour-complete with a large brown cow, Thursday afternoon, and it brought out a large crowd of supporters of public education who say that it is being threatened by the lawmakers in Raleigh. Speakers included former Congressman Bob Etheridge, former Representative Jimmy Love, Senator Deb McManus, local teacher Sandi Shovener, and a representative of the NCAE. The speakers spoke of a long list of republican sponsored bills in the General Assembly which they said could destroy public education and set the state back by generations.
