In response to complaints of on-the-job bulling by administrators, the Classroom Teachers Association of North Carolina in Charlotte is calling for an Ombuds for the 159-school district. Following the recent resignation of the CMS Superintendent, school teachers and former teachers convened earlier this week to talk about "working in a culture of fear" and leadership issues. "There needs to be a mechanism where teachers can go, and they need to be aware of that," said George Walker, a former CMS teacher. (TWC News.)
