NC House votes on controversial bill designed to lower class size, add teachers
RALEIGH, N.C. (WLOS) —
A big vote in the North Carolina legislature Tuesday could impact class size.
The senate passed House Bill 90 last week, and it's expected to go before the House.
The issue has been hotly debated for the last year. The measure would gradually lower class sizes starting in 2021.
It would also add $61 million for more art and PE teachers, and increase funding for pre-K. The bill also included several add-ons, like changing the state elections board.
Critics say the measure should only address class size.
The bill will likely pass, but there's no word yet on whether the governor will sign it.
