The General Assembly ratified and Gov. Easley signed into law a bill that will provide additional support to high-need schools. Schools classified as high-need schools will be issued more National Board Certified Teachers to lower the student-teacher ratio and give children more individualized attention. The bill, Senate Bill 1479, gives these teachers, and teachers who have received certain awards, the freedom to use research-based teaching techniques that go beyond the standard course of study.
