Negative $31243: Career Change in Pay Received – This North Carolina General Assembly Does Not Want to Have Veteran Teachers

Any experienced, veteran teacher here in North Carolina knows the differences in the salary schedules that have guided pay for the last ten years.

Sometimes one graph can put things into sharp perspective.

Derek Scott has been following trends in public education and possesses that gift of explaining concepts that many politicians hope to keep vague (for spinning purposes) in ways that make startling sense. His wife is a newly elected school board member in the state’s largest school system and many of us public school advocates really respect his work. In fact, he has been translating numbers and trends in public education for years.

And he does it well.

Yesterday, he posted the following in response to a post on this blog about changes in teacher pay over the last ten years in North Carolina.

Hard to be an experienced teacher and not see the clarity in what he is saying.

Here is a closer look at that chart:

Remember we no longer as  teachers receive longevity pay and inflation affects any profession.

Simply put, this NCGA does not want to have veteran teachers in our schools.

  1. Agreed!

    The GOP dominated NCGA wants to continue tax cuts in perpetuity. Eliminating experienced teachers insures that the state’s education payroll liabilities will continue to decline for decades to come. Lower payrolls mean they will be able to offer tax cuts in the future.

    Education is the last thing about which the GOP NCGA is truly concerned.

    The leadership thinks North Carolina will be more atttactive to business because of low taxes. In their minds it would appear that the quality of the state’s public is of no importance.

    Berger and Moore are two blind mice.
