Governor Pat McCrory has said raising the base salary for starting K-12 teachers is his goal, but available revenue  will determine if others see a jump in pay.
State Schools Superintendent June Atkinson, who joins us this weekend on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon, says the state cannot afford to overlook any of its teachers:
“One of the first priorities must be to give all of our teachers a raise, ” said Atkinson in a radio interview with NC Policy Watch.
Atkinson also shares her thoughts on the proposal by some lawmakers to ditch the Common Core and replace  it with new state standards, which have yet to be developed.
