Triangle History

Originally the Triangle name referred to the universities, whose educational workforce and research facilities had historically provided as a major attraction for businesses located in the region. The “Triangle” name was stamped into the public conscience in the 1959 with the creation of “Research Triangle Park”, which had become home to many numerous high-tech companies and enterprises.

Research Triangle Park was created by state and local governments, the nearby universities, as well as local business interests. The land where the park now stands was purchased by Karl Robbins. The park is situated within a pine forest with a land mass of 7,000 acres, with 630 acres reserved for development.

Teachers and Parents Outraged

Teachers and residents in Triangle, North Carolina are protesting against a decrease in funding, eliminating tenure, dropping bonuses for instructors with master’s degrees, and removing the cap on class sizes. This will not only deter new teachers, but have a direct result on those who are already teaching. This will also affect the way our children learn. Kids already feel the tight schedule due to the class sizes; now there will not be a max out on the head count. This also means the school will not have to hire more teachers.
