Governor http://wfae.org en McCrory's Plan Includes Small Raises For All Teachers, Pay Overhaul http://wfae.org/post/mccrorys-plan-includes-small-raises-all-teachers-pay-overhaul <p></p><p>Governor Pat McCrory rolled out his plan yesterday to give all teachers a pay raise next year. That’s right, all teachers, not just those in their first ten years on the job as he proposed earlier this year. It also includes a long-term plan to overhaul teacher pay. State lawmakers say it sounds good, but they wonder where all that money will come from.&nbsp;</p><p> Thu, 08 May 2014 13:51:54 +0000 Lisa Miller 50511 at http://wfae.org McCrory's Plan Includes Small Raises For All Teachers, Pay Overhaul McCrory Speaks To Charlotte Chamber Of Commerce http://wfae.org/post/mccrory-speaks-charlotte-chamber-commerce <p></p><p>North Carolina’s next governor, Pat McCrory, spoke Tuesday night at the Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting in Uptown.

Democrat Walter Dalton got a polite, but cool reception from the group last month. For McCrory, the welcome was filled with anecdotes and inside jokes.</p><p>It was just “Mayor Pat” to this overflowing room of local business leaders. Clearly on his home court, McCrory played into that. Former councilman Edwin Peacock surprised McCrory with a clip from an old home movie showing the former mayor as a fresh-faced 21 year old refereeing a high school basketball game in Charlotte.</p> Tue, 23 Oct 2012 19:36:26 +0000 Julie Rose 14414 at http://wfae.org McCrory Feels At Home In Charlotte Rotary Address Dalton Pushes Education Plan That Restores Recent Cuts http://wfae.org/post/dalton-pushes-education-plan-restores-recent-cuts <p>Lieutenant Governor Walter Dalton campaigned in Charlotte Friday to pitch his education plan for the state.&nbsp; If elected governor, he says he'd push to restore education funding lawmakers cut in recent years.&nbsp; That includes pre-kindergarten programs that prepare needy children for school.&nbsp; It also includes raising teacher salaries over four years to the national average of $56,000.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Fri, 05 Oct 2012 19:35:53 +0000 Lisa Miller 13270 at http://wfae.org Dalton Pushes Education Plan That Restores Recent Cuts
