    Well at $ 1000/job this is a lot better investment than anything obuma created, although I do not like the state giving money to private companies. It might as well be a bribe. The state has never offered me one dime for my business and I have never needed any money. It's called hard work, selling a good product that people need. If businesses can't make it on their own, they don't need to be in business. Stop giving away my tax dollars North Carolina. And about the teachers, I agree they need more money, but we need to stop wasting so much money on these new schools. It doesn't take $ 20 million to build a school building. Most schools are built on land stolen from private parties by lawyers or bureaucrats, then sold to the state with millions of dollars of profits to the land sharks. Then the under the table deals for construction, paving, landscaping, contractors, ect raise the costs. It's all a scam and taxpayers pay it all.

    How many jobs do you suppose we will be able to afford to pay for out of our multi-billion dollar funding shortfall. Do you suppose this act of generosity (stupidity??) will cost any school teachers their jobs??
