Gov. Pat McCrory says he's looking at whether he'd like changes to a law phasing out job protections of North Carolina school teachers while giving raises to the highest-rated instructors who enter multiyear contracts.

McCrory said Wednesday he shares the concerns of some about how the tenure-ending law is being implemented. But he says the law's intent is very good. Any changes would need General Assembly approval.

Wake County and several other school districts have formally spoken out against the 2013 law, which directs them to pick the best 25 percent of its classroom teachers and offer them the tenure-ending contracts. Those who accept the contracts would get bonuses.

The North Carolina Association of Educators has sued to block the law.
