Constance Lav Johnson's family has been part of this community for many years, over five generations, working tirelessly to make it a better place. It didn't begin with Constance Lav Johnson, but generations before through Robert Partee, Johnson's (maternal) Great Great Grandfather, who worked alongside Congressman Henderson; and her (paternal) Great Great Aunt and Uncle of the Johnson Family who were school teachers listed on the 1900 Census.
Constance Lav Johnson continued the legacy of both families, teaching through schools; publishing periodicals; inspiring and training citizens to run for office; engaging in the political process; and developing creative ways to educate students and leaders.
Education was designed to be inclusive so that all citizens of the state of NC are engaged in the process of walking our students to gainful vocations and businesses. We must connect our students to the important events and activities that matter to their careers and incomes. Constance Lav Johnson is not only a formally trained educator with a Masters from University of Maryland ES, but she is a proven and successful vocational consultant.
Securing schools is a priority for the candidate. Walking with David Hogg and John Rosenthal was a bold and dedicated effort to send out the message that we need to create legislation to stop the gun violence. Constance walked 30 of the full 50 miles to Smith & Wesson Gun Factory with the students of Massachusetts. Constance Lav Johnson is the author of the proposed bill, GLUP21, that restricts the age of purchasing and using a gun to 21.
The cost of living in North Carolina is not affordable to the average public school teacher, but teachers work an average of 70 hours a week, preparing for classes and teaching classes. A fair annual wage is minimum of $60,000.
Our public schools are closing at a rapid rate due to the voucher system that gives parents the selection of schools in their regions. Many families have removed their students from public schools due to the needed upgrades in construction and academics. It's time to RAISE THE GRADE!!!
Pulling a 50 lb. cart behind you as a teacher wears and tears on the body. Pulling it for a 9 months, up and down stairs, creates a distraction from planning, creativity, and stability in teaching. Every teacher requires a classroom.
Our students are creative and intelligent and need new experiences that add to the classroom instruction. Raise the Grade!!!
All parents experience some level of frustration with the school system and motivation of their children and youth, namely through adolescence. However, parents engaged in the process of their children's education get good results.
THE PARENTS' GRADE FOR EXCELLENCE IN ACADEMICS ARRIVES UPON THE ELECTION OF CONSTANCE LAV JOHNSON IN 2020.
Sign up to receive updates from the candidate on the trail!
