Gov. Cooper vetoes terrible pay bill
“The General Assembly continues to shortchange teachers and non-certified school personnel like cafeteria workers, bus drivers and teacher assistants, despite a robust economy and decent raises for other state employees,” Cooper said in a news release. “Educators deserve more if our schools are to remain competitive with other states and keep good teachers.”
