Will NC Teachers Once Again Get Extra Pay for Master’s Degrees? Plan Has Bipartisan Support.

Some North Carolina teachers might get rewarded with extra money for their master’s degree after state lawmakers cut off the benefit to educators who weren’t already in the program.

Senate Bill 28 filed Wednesday would restore master’s pay for teachers as long as they get their degree in the subject that they’re teaching. The bill has quickly gotten bipartisan support as a way to recognize teachers while being more narrowly tailored than what was previously offered.

North Carolina public school teachers are not leaving their jobs in droves, but when they do leave, elementary schools are struggling the most to fill the empty teaching positions, according to a report shared with the State Board of Education on Wednesday.

“There’s no evidence that teachers are fleeing the profession. The outgoing percentage is very, very stable, and it’s not high. You would expect this in any industry,” said Tom Tomberlin, director of educator recruitment and support for the state Department of Public Instruction. However, “we’re having real trouble finding elementary teachers,” he said, adding that school systems are “finding it’s becoming increasingly problematic.”

A school safety commission formed by Gov. Roy Cooper after the Parkland school massacre says North Carolina needs to be proactive and provide money to have an armed police officer at every school in the state.

Questions about how to make schools safer have intensified since 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., last February. The report presented Thursday by the Governor’s Crime Commission Special Committee on School Shootings says it’s time to discuss providing permanent funding for school resource officer positions in every school.

Three state exams could be eliminated as part of an ongoing effort to reduce the amount of testing being given to North Carolina public school students.

State Department of Public Instruction officials said Wednesday they will recommend eliminating the N.C. Final Exams for science in fourth grade and for social studies in fourth and fifth grades. More than 23,000 students take these exams each year to assess how teachers are performing using the SAS EVAAS program.

As the General Assembly gets underway for the 2019 long session, advocacy groups wonder how — and whether — legislators will try to make a difference in the lives of children with learning differences.

“Learning differences” is a term used to describe students who have non-traditional learning profiles and who struggle to keep up in classrooms designed for the “average learner.” According to researchers and advocacy groups, learning differences (or LD) affects one in five kids in schools. That’s roughly 10 million children nationwide.

Your child’s teacher may not be fully licensed, especially if your child attends a certain school.

Dawn Madren, Human Resources director for the Alamance-Burlington School System, presented data to the school board last week on North Carolina’s teacher shortage and how ABSS has filled vacant positions.

Since 2010, enrollment in undergraduate education programs across the UNC System has decreased by 41 percent. That’s the canary in the state’s education coal mine.

Knightdale High School could soon get a new calendar that many other North Carolina high schools want but that the state’s tourism industry is against.

The Wake County school board gave initial approval Tuesday to a proposal that would allow Knightdale High to start the school year in early August instead of in late August. This change would allow students to take final first semester exams before winter break. That option isn’t available for most North Carolina schools because of the state’s school calendar law.

“Digitization and Divergence: Online School Ratings and Segregation in America”

If there’s one thing parents, real estate agents, and educators all understand implicitly, it’s this: High property values are built on top-notch school districts.

Excellent schools are considered so precious, parents will risk huge fines and even jail sentences by enrolling their children under false pretenses. Buyers, even those without children, are willing to pay hefty premiums to live in good districts, since their prices are resilient to downturns in the housing market. And real estate databases like Zillow, Trulia, and Redfin all include copious information on the proximity and quality of local education options.

Four years ago, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo pushed through a plan to put New York at the forefront of a national movement to reshape American public education: He vowed that half of a teacher’s rating would be determined by student results on standardized exams.

But his initiative met with immediate resistance from teachers’ unions and parents, especially those in New York’s wealthy suburbs and progressive urban pockets.
