Soucek's Fairy Dust

The deep gap in Soucek's record
Sen. Dan Soucek is holding a rah-rah-ain't-I-great-for-education campaign rally at the Deep Gap Volunteer Fire Department this evening, and the State Department of Public Instruction reports that some 14.3 percent of public school teachers left their jobs in 2012-13.

From the N&O: "Teachers are angry about stagnant salaries, the phase-out of tenure, and the end to pay increases for earning advanced degrees. Teachers and parents protested low salaries and new education policies at schools around the state last month. The state ranked 46th in the nation for average teacher pay in 2011-12."

Never mind that! Soucek will be promoting bogus statistics tonight that will prove -- prove! -- that he and Jonathan Jordan and all the rest of the Raleigh Clown Car have actually increased spending for education in North Carolina.

Plus he'll be changing the subject to his reelection campaign issue of demonizing Common Core.

You can take that to the bank.
