Protests continue over budget cuts to public education in North Carolina.
A rally was held in Hendersonville right across the street from state senator Tom Apodaca's office.
About 75 people dressed in red showed up to protest budget cuts to education and also a reduction in teacher assistant positions. Folks at Monday's rally also say increases in class sizes are making it difficult for teachers to work in our state. They believe it impacts not only the teachers and students, but also has a direct affect on parents.
Teachers across the state held "walk-ins" to protest the new education laws. The parent team of Vance Elementary joined their effort by picketing outside the school. Nearly a 150 people gathered outside Brevard High School this morning to protest too.
