RALEIGH -- There's been lots of talk about education and teachers this week -- from "walk ins" and protests, to Governor Pat McCrory convening his first meeting of a teacher advisory committee to discuss working conditions and the future of the classroom. State Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson says pay is still a major concern.

Atkinson says, "Our teachers spend 5 1/2 to 6 hours with our children every day. And if I had children in our public schools, I would want the very best person possible. And I would not want my children's teachers to have to work two and three jobs."

This year, Governor Pat McCrory has proposed pay raises for teachers and other state workers, but then said increased Medcaid costs made such raises impossible.
