This morning, Pat McCrory made an appearance at the North Carolina Association of School Administrators conference. Under McCrory, North Carolina ranked as the second-worst
state to be a teacher. The state ranks 43rd in average teacher pay and 43rd in per-pupil spending
McCrory faced a tough crowd for most of his speech, including when he outlined his plan — announced earlier this month — for a 5-percent average teacher pay increase and bonuses as high as $5,000 for longtime teachers.
“That’s something that should be applauded,” the governor told the audience of school superintendents and principals.
He didn’t get a single clap.
