National education experts and leading policymakers will be in Raleigh next week for the 29th annual Emerging Issues Forum .
The two-day conference, focusing on how teacher quality impacts educational outcomes and economic competitiveness, comes at a time that teacher satisfaction  is near an all time low in the Tar Heel state. North Carolina currently ranks 46th in the nation in teacher pay.
Anita Brown-Graham , director of the the Institute for Emerging Issues, says this year’s forum provides a chance to discuss how North Carolina can design and fund a competitive compensation system that attracts and retains world-class talent in the teaching profession.
Speakers this year include former NC Governor Jim Hunt and the following national leaders:
Governor Pat McCrory is expected to address  the issue of teacher pay when he speaks on Monday.
For those interested in hearing from the speakers on February 10th and 11th, the sessions will be available as a free live video-stream .
Brown-Graham joins us this weekend on N.C. Policy Watch’s weekend radio show, News and Views with Chris Fitzsimon, with a preview.
