A preview of the NC General Assembly session which starts January 9th, from a site called JDSupra: (Operated by a public affairs firm vcalled McGuire Woods Consulting.)
Teacher pay raises: Since taking power in 2011, Republicans have increased teacher pay, but Democrats have criticized the amounts of the raises and the state’s standing in national rankings. Expect Gov. Cooper and legislative Democrats to make higher teacher pay a top priority next year.
I’m particularly chaffed that the teacher pay scale holds individual teachers at the same rate for several years. Between year 15 and year 24, the pay is expected to be the same. ($5,000 a month.) I’m not complaining about teacher pay; others have it much worse. Some have it better.
Of course, the salary schedule will probably be completely reworked again this year.
