Meeting Looks At Pay Incentives For NC Teachers

RALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina lawmakers, school leaders and parents are considering whether teachers can be better rewarded for performance through a statewide incentives package.


The General Assembly scheduled the first meeting Tuesday of the Educator Effectiveness and Compensation Task Force. Legislators authorized the panel to make recommendations by mid-April.


Finding a better way to link teacher and administrator performance to salaries has been a hot topic since Republicans took over the legislature in 2011. Teachers used to get bonuses based on student scores on standardized tests.


The discussion comes as North Carolina school teachers have received one raise since 2008. Gov. Pat McCrory and legislative leaders this month pledged to raise salaries of the least-experienced teachers. McCrory said that pay change is a first step.
