NC Teacher Tenure To End?
Among the differences is that the Senate Bill will end tenure for public K-12 school teachers in North Carolina. Teachers will, instead be hired on a year by year contract basis.
The Senate version also includes a 1.2% pay raise for state employees other than teachers and allocates $84 million to local school districts to be used for hiring, pay raises or performance pay. The house version provided for a $250.00 cash bonus to state employees in lieu of a pay raise.
