The editorial in your Tuesday, April 6, edition suggests that N.C. Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt should concentrate on kids, not politicians. This implies that all is right with our schools, which is totally incorrect.

The League of Women Voters of Northeastern North Carolina is announcing a statewide effort to promote redistricting reform in North Carolina, especially on April 29 of this year. We’re calling it the “Day of Action” or the “People Powered Fair Maps Initiative.” On that day, League members ac…
