Teacher: Pay Raise Numbers Are Misleading
“When people hear $50,000, I think they think a lot of teachers make $50,000, but most of the people I know that are teaching don’t really make anything close.” [WCNC; 8/29/16]
“Our state is 41st in teacher pay, and many teachers are leaving the state to make ends meet. Governor McCrory offers talking points and rhetoric, but the truth is that he hasn’t given our students and educators the respect they deserve. It’s time for a governor who will prioritize our state’s reputation” said Jamal Little, Cooper campaign spokesman.
