NCAE Statement on House Budget Proposal

Master’s pay and beginning teacher raises give hope, but an expansion of private school vouchers won’t help. Educators are looking for lawmakers to match our effort so we can continue to support North Carolina's students.

RALEIGH – Today, the North Carolina Association of Educators released the following statement in regards to the latest House budget proposal:

“Our teachers and public school employees just finished another successful school year, making extraordinary efforts to teach our kids in the face of continued staff shortages, low pay, and lack of respect. How much longer will they hang on? We lost 1 in 9 teachers just last year. Master’s pay and beginning teacher raises give hope, but an expansion of private school vouchers won’t help. Educators are looking for lawmakers to match our effort so we can continue to support North Carolina's students."

- Tamika Walker Kelly, NCAE President
