from the core report (I swear):

The percent of North Carolinians with no high school diploma has dropped from over 30% in 1990 to just over 15% in 2020.

Worse than I thought.

Most notably, if you have the skillset to work in a STEM job (horrible buzzword acronym), you have the opportunity to work in almost any major city in the country. Why would you choose to subject yourself to NC?

Can we cut their welfare?

The widespread derp is pretty easily traceable--beginning at cuts in school funding that became widespread in the 70s. Those troglodytes end up later running for office with massively ignorant and stupid viewpoints, pass laws for everyone else to obey that make them feel comfortable in their moronic worldview, and the downward spiral continues.

The irony here in using the past participle to describe a future event in an article about education should not be lost on anyone.

FTA:

Citing data compiled in "North Carolina: The Shape of Its Change" from The Program on Public Life at UNC-Chapel Hill, the report notes the opportunity of STEM-related jobs:

"By 2018, approximately 1.4 million job vacancies are projected for North Carolina, either from new job creation or from retirements."Of those vacancies, about 833,000 will require some post- secondary education. Indeed, approximately 59% of all jobs (2.9 million) in 2018 in North Carolina will require post-secondary education. Most of the state's economic engine will be fueled by these jobs."North Carolina will have more job growth requiring post- secondary education than most of the South and Southwest."The occupational areas anticipated to grow most rapidly include medical and allied health and computer technology."


You know what this mean NC people. This means more Godless Yankees infiltrating your state and making it even more purple than it is today.

See what happens when you don't make education a priority?

Yeah but you would have to root for the Bobcats and Panthers. Nothing is worth that kind of punishment.

Although to be fair, Charlotte and the Triangle do seem like decent places to live.

I kinda liked NC when I visited there.  People seemed nice, BBQ was pretty delicious and the girls were pretty good lookin.  I was in Chapel Hill (twice) and Durham (once), which compromise two of the three in their research triangle, presumably that's where most STEM people would go.

Sure their politics are farked up but why all the hate?

Because, from personal experience of living there for too long, the people may seem nice at first, but they'll soon want you dead if you don't join their cult

Is this true in Charlotte and the Triangle too.

I always wondered if it would be better to live in those places or Atlanta.

No. The triangle is almost a blue utopia. All the metropolitan areas are fine, the rest of the state... well, while beautiful and wonderful to visit, it's best not to discuss anything besides the weather or fishing with rural locals.

RTP is like the Austin of NC (with better bbq). But even the other cities are pretty bad, and outside those is pure hell.

Also from the core report:

These freeloadin' teachers are just anglin' for more money.

Do you know how many armed guards we could buy with that that cash?

Exactly, and this is why people from the North have moved into NC to fill in these jobs. Because the school system in NC isn't doing a good enough job teaching these kids the skills they need for these kind of jobs.

Hoo, boy, we gots to get us some of them, there fancy-dan jobs working with compooters and stuff.  But it appears that our decades of an economy that required little edikashun hasn't somehow allowed us to produce little smart folks.....nor to cotton on to this economic change thing earlier....

FTFA: "The proud, traditional businesses that fueled our economy in the past, especially those requiring minimal skills and education, are playing a diminishing role in our state."

Wow, you guys sure caught the wave on that one!  Remember, just one state above South Carolina - I can hardly wait to ride the Boeing Dreamliner, made by the best technical minds that South Cackalacky has to offer.  I used to think North Carolina was going to make it in the 21st Century with Research Triangle - but I see those hopes fading in the rear view mirror....you better hope immigrants will want to move there before they know the state well.....

NC is making a bid for its own Fark tag. And I have to say, even though my adopted state is making the Fark for shiatty reasons, a Fark tag would make it all worthwhile.

I just watched that video again. That was one of the most true examples of veiled racism I'm ever seen. "Just because he's from here doesn't mean he thinks like us."

Sorry. Off topic.

Don't worry. From what I've seen at my time at a Boeing Supplier in SC, most of the technical minds are being imported from the northeast and midwest.

Also, North Carolina is North of SC, not "above" it. Damn Flat-Earther.

I recall reading that one of the reasons the south has lower educational standards is that there is a persistent belief that educating people "spoils" them into wanting to get paid more.  When that doesn't happen they move out of state.
 
2013-04-11 05:47:33 PM  
We need highly qualified teachers with STEM background.  Bachelors degrees in math, physics, chemistry, biology required.  We would also like you to have a Masters degree in Education.  We're still gonna pay you less than the football coach makes and oh, btw EVERYONE and their brother will still biatch and complain how easy your job is and how awesome your benefits are.

Get in line citizen, the state needs YOU!
