This is the image for the news article titled KCS supports "Wear Red for Public Ed" campaignKCS employees joined thousands of other North Carolinians on May 14 in wearing red to support public education. The gesture was designed to demonstrate widespread support for public schools across NC and encourage legislators to increase funding for public education as they began their short session. 

Since 2008, enrollment in NC public schools has climbed by more than 33,000 students (2%) while funding has plummeted 6%. In addition, NC ranks near the bottom of the country in teacher pay and per pupil funding and is 51st in the trend of teacher pay during the last decade. KCS is dedicated to building support and respect for public education and advocating for increased funding for teachers and schools.
