A few ambitious ideas presented by N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory in Statesville during this past Monday’s Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce annual awards dinner were greeted with skepticism by local education officials this week.

Specifically, McCrory offered three suggestions regarding changing the way teachers are paid in the state: Raising the salary of a teacher with zero to five years of experience from $30,800 to $35,000; tying teacher pay to the market value of the subject taught; and allowing for raises for highly effective teachers to the point that the best classroom teachers could earn as much as a principal.
