NC Schools' Budget

While UNC System Schools have cut classes due to lack of funding, the UNC System Schools have increased funding for sports.  Fiscal insanity.

The school budget

If the Republicans came out and stated that they would meet the demands of the public schools..........would there even be an election?

The funding for schools seems to be the only issue in the campaign for governor.  So if the Republicans agree to meet the school budget demands will the Republican gain 100% of the vote?

If that is true then we can cancel the election and put all the election and campaign costs toward the school budget.  North Carolina will have reached complete agreement and we can all live happily ever after.
