Taylor Evans, a public school teacher in Vance County, NC, had this advice for North Carolinians who are steamed about the chronic underfunding of public schools: “Go harder.”

Evans was one of many educators who gathered over the weekend at a #DefendBlackHistory summit in Charlotte, organized by the advocacy group @colorofchange.

Public schools in NC are some of the most poorly funded in the nation, and public schools teachers are some of the poorly paid. Both are set by the Republican-dominated NC state legislature.
