Here’s a recap of what’s taken place so far at today’s Wake County school board meeting.
The most heated discussion took place about how Wake would have to implement the new state law eliminating teacher tenure. Like other districts, Wake would have until June 2014 to offer 25 percent of the teachers a four-year contract that comes with $4,000 in raises over the next four years.
The contracts can only be offered to teachers who have tenure, called career status in North Carolina. If they accept, they’d voluntarily give up their career status.
