McCrory: Frontloading teacher raises among options

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Gov. Pat McCrory says his administration is looking at many options to bolster North Carolina public school teacher pay, including front-loading raises toward new teachers and increases based on instructional performance or in-demand fields.
    
McCrory made the comments Thursday as he welcomed dozens of business leaders to the Executive Mansion for lunch and discussion.
    
North Carolina teachers have had one raise since 2009. It's led to low morale and protests outside schools and at McCrory's office one day last week. McCrory held his first teacher advisory committee meeting later that week.
    
McCrory says he wants input from that panel and the North Carolina Business Committee for Education, whose members gathered at the mansion.
    
McCrory has blamed Medicaid shortfalls for siphoning away money he wanted for teacher and state employee raises.
