State teachers group critical of proposed license, pay overhaul
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Members of North Carolina’s leading teacher advocacy group are criticizing a proposed overhaul of public school instructor pay and licensing.
The North Carolina Association of Educators held a news conference Tuesday.
It’s unhappy with a licensure model released months ago that’s based on recommendations coming out of a state commission.
A performance-pay model has the support of state Superintendent Catherine Truitt and State Board of Education chairman Eric Davis.
NCAE Vice President Bryan Proffitt says the existing experienced-based salary schedule will help recruit and retain educators if it’s sufficiently funded.
A final proposal will require the backing of the board and the General Assembly.
