McCrory Education Aide: Raising Teacher Pay To Take Years PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH, (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory's administration is responding to criticism about changes affecting public schools and teachers by saying it's listening and looking for ways to build statewide consensus.

 
McCrory on Thursday sent his education adviser Eric Guckian to speak to hundreds of superintendents, principals and others who manage the operations of public schools. His message to the North Carolina Association of School Administrators was that state political leaders are responding to complaints about low teacher pay, too much testing, and decisions stripping control from local schools.
 
Guckian says McCrory and legislative leaders are determined to raise what he called the "criminally low" starting pay of less than $31,000, where teachers have been stuck for years. He says keeping good teachers in the classroom with better salaries will be a multi-year effort.
