NC House Republicans truly value the dedication to our children demonstrated by our teachers. Contrary to the propaganda perpetrated by out-of-state labor unions and Democrats, our budgets offered teachers their first significant raise in years – 7% or more than $3,300 per teacher. We will continue to reward teachers for their hard in educating our next generation.
“Thank you to all North Carolina teachers for your immeasurable contribution and tireless efforts impacting the lives of our students, ensuring the success of our schools and improving the quality of education systems across our state.”
“The North Carolina House will maintain its teacher appreciation agenda in 2017 by building on the nation’s fastest growing teacher pay since 2014, keeping public school investments a priority and passing education reforms to boost student achievement at every grade level,” said NC House Speaker Tim Moore.
