Eeeeeevil Republicans fund over 3,000 more public school jobs in 2012-13

According to figures released this morning by the NC Department of Public Instruction, the state’s public schools added 3,198 state-funded education jobs this year and 7,811 jobs since Republicans became the majority in the NC General Assembly.

As you can see from the table below, Republican legislators made good on their promise to 1) curb the growth of administrative positions and consultants and 2) add teaching positions at all levels.

(Note: This chart does not include charter school employees or those funded with federal and/or county dollars.)

While the number of public school jobs funded by the federal government continues to drop, there are 1,519 more public school employees this year than last year.  Increases in positions funded by state and county governments compensated for the loss of temporary federal grant funding.
