BRINGS LIGHT TO WHY THE EDUCATION PROBLEMS ARE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE BY PUTTING A BANDAGE ON A CUT OF A MAJOR ARTERY THAT IS BLEEDING THE EDUCATION OUT OF SO MANY CHILDREN UNTO DEATH.  IS IT A CRIME OR NOT?  IT IS A CRYING SHAME NO DOUBT! THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA IS PAYING FOR SOME CHILDREN TO DROP OUT OF SCHOOL EVEN BEFORE THEY ALLOW SOME CHILDREN TO DROP IN! WHAT IS THE DOLLARS AND CENTS OF THAT DESERVED BUDGET CUT!
