Governor Cooper held a Question and Answer Session while visiting Massey Hill Classical HighNorth Carolina Governor Roy Cooper paid a special visit to Massey Hill Classical High School to announce  the proposal for his budget which he hopes will encourage state legislators to “put our money where our trust is by investing in public education.”
 
The Governor told a group of reporters, city and county elected officials, educators, and students that he felt “North Carolina being ranked 37th in the U.S. for teacher pay is unacceptable.” He said the proposal for his budget would “elevate the profession to get teacher pay up significantly.” 
 
Gov. Cooper plans to propose at least a 5 percent raise for all teachers, including veterans teachers, and to raise school-principal pay by 8 percent. He said the taxes taken from corporations and people making over $200,000 a year should be invested in raising teacher pay. 
 
In an effort to make schools across the state safer, he is proposing “commonsense gun reform” and wants to invest in hiring 500 more school nurses and counselors to help with the mental health needs of students. 
 
During the Governor’s visit, he also held a 20-minute roundtable discussion with several teachers, a school counselor and social worker, and the SRO as well as visited several classrooms to see innovative teaching practices and talk briefly with teachers and students.
