As we continue our work to advance the priorities of North Carolina Vision 2030 going into the legislative short session, education remains a top priority. Today Governor McCrory unveiled an outline of a broad vision to increase teacher pay.
While the Governor’s general outline appears at initial review to be good policy, we have not been provided details on how this initiative will be funded. This makes it difficult for us to provide a full endorsement of the plan at this time. However, the policy outlined demonstrates an alignment with North Carolina Vision 2030 and we remain supportive of Governor McCrory and legislative leadership as they work to support public education in our state.

As the conversation around teacher pay reform continues, our team will remain engaged and keep you updated.
