JAMESTOWN -- Monday morning, Governor Pat McCrory announced a plan to raise pay for teachers with less than 5 years of experience. The boost would come in increments over the next two years, bumping starter teacher salary in the Tar Heel state from just under $31,000 to $35,000 per year. But that doesn't do anything for veteran teachers, according to Kristin Beller - 4th grade teacher in Wake County speaking on behalf of Aim Higher NC.

Beller said, "I'm happy for my younger teachers that are at my school, or less-experienced teachers, because I know that they're really struggling right now. They're having a hard time making their bills and their payments. But that's also true of every teacher. With our pay being frozen for five years, a lot of us are working second jobs, third jobs even."

The proposal will cost roughly $200 million, but would not require a tax increase.
