As I’m sitting here, I wonder if I’m really even capable of blogging about this without it turning into some chaotic rant on the state of public education. Probably not, but I feel like I need to say something about what’s been going on in public education in my home state.
See, when you’re an expat, even a well-adjusted one like I consider myself, you always miss home. You get excited about going home. You think about your favorite things to eat, the people you love, and all the stuff you’re going to see and do when you get back to the world you know and love.
Over the past couple of weeks, through a draconian near-dismemberment of public education, the state of North Carolina has made pretty sure I won’t be going home when our time here in Korea is up. And it’s not just because of the money, although not being paid for the Masters degree that I earned is a pretty serious affront.
